QUOTE OF THE DAY

"I was fortunate enough to receive a part-scholarship to spend a week with Geoff, who is one of the best ultramarathon runners in the world. The equivalent of this would be playing one-on-one with LeBron James." - Stawell runner Kieran Ryan on getting to Ryan spend a week at Geoff Roes' Alaska Mountain Ultrarunning Camp.
