HOKA ONE ONE® Athlete Sage Canaday All Class at Tarawera

March 17, 2014

U.S. HOKA ONE ONE® Athlete Sage Canaday showed his class in defending his title at the 2014 Vibram Tarawera Ultramarathon over the weekend. In the face of Cyclone Lusi, the Ultramarathon had revised courses of 69 km and 55km. The field of 850 from 28 countries still experienced the Bay of Plenty's lakes and bush clad slopes. But the forecast proved accurate and there was no question race director, Paul Charteris made the right call in revising the route.

Canaday of Boulder, Colorado was one of a large bunch that formed over the early kilometres, alongside other contenders including Kiwi's Michael Aish, Vajin Armstrong and fellow Americans Scott Hawker and Mike Wardian, but around the midway point Canaday made his move and 15 kilometres later had established a seven-minute lead. By the finish, this lead had more than doubled with Canaday clocking a time of 5hrs 33min.

“You’re always on a fine line,” he said. "It was an honour to win for a second year - I love New Zealand and this race and it was great to be back."

Second place in the men's race went to China's Yun Yanqiao (5hrs 52mins), with Kiwi Vajin Armstrong rounding out the podium in 5hrs 57mins.

Hoka One One athletes Scott Hawker and Michael Wardian finished in 5th and 8th places respectively.

There’s no way someone can run this.’ The whole thing just seemed unfathomable. So I just walked down,” she says. “I tried to run a few parts, but said to myself, ‘This is stupid. I could fall.’ After that, I realized I needed to be able to run it. And I told myself the day that I could run that section is the day that I would’ve really started getting trail running.

Race Review: T42-24km- National Park NZ

June 29, 2018

The road back into shape has been quite a roller coaster of a journey for me. I have never been this out of shape before and my body just felt so weak and foreign to me after his birth. The concept of having to start from so far away from where I used to be and from where I wanted to be was quite overwhelming and despite trying to be very careful and smart about rebuilding, with very little sleep and hours of sitting around breastfeeding, I ended up having a few issues with my back and knees that have made the process even slower then I imagined it would be.
