Stu's Bio

Stuart on his way to a top 20 finish at the 2009 Melbourne Half Marathon which featured over 3,000 competitors!

After completing 10 years honourable service in The Royal Australian Army, Stuart travelled the world living and working in many countries engaging in diverse inter-cultural communication and gaining valuable life experience about the human condition. 

Returning to Australia with 7 years of world travels under his belt, Stuart began to compete on the multi-sport calendar and he competed in many different sports like duathlons, triathlons, running & cycling events.

Racing in Ironman and half ironman events helped prepare Stuart for his greatest challenge in becoming Australian Open Ultra distance running champion in 1999 in the 6-hour category, and runner up in the 12 hour category the following year.  

Stuart is pictured here representing Triathlon Australia at The World Championships in 2015!  

During the 2014 mulit-sport season, Stuart won The South Australian State Triathlon, Duathlon and Aquathlon Championships as well as winning the overall State Triathlon Series Championship!

2014 & 15 are memorable years in having graduated from Flinders University as a Bachelor of Languages and a Bachelor of Arts Honours after five years full-time study which culminated with the submission of his thesis in French Language and Culture, in the field of French literature.

A grand occasion in receiving his Bachelor of Languages Degree and Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree at Flinders University.
