We are proud to support a great community of athletes who inspire us everyday, whether it's smashing out race wins or toughing out gutsy training sessions in extreme conditions.
One of Hong Kong's top runners with a number of big race wins, including Green Power, Hard As Nayls and the Ferei Dark 45. Henri loves to travel - with Ultra Trail Australia, Eiger Ultra Trail, Lavaredo and Diagonale Des Fous ticked off - and also loves racing in his signature board shorts. No issues if you're wearing T8 Commandos!
Bill only started running when he moved to Hong Kong in 2013 because of the allure of all the trails in his backyard. He hasn't looked back since and has gone on to participate in many ultra trail races both domestically and internationally including the prestigious UTMB in France as they "keep your junk in place chafe-free".
Michael finds respite from Hong Kong's urban lifestyle by running the mountains near his home on Lantau Island. Loving your training is definitely working for Michael with recent wins at King of the Hills, Hard As Nayls, Lantau Vertical and the Lantau 70, and he's excited about T8, "Looking forward to being part of the team, and can't wait to see more T8 gear coming!"
Matt is an avid trail runner but also one of the good guys, recently running 320 kilometres across Cambodia - everyday in his T8 Commandos - to raise over USD100,000 for the Temple Garden Foundation. He clearly wasn't trying hard enough as finished with a 1:29 at the Angkor Wat Half Marathon on the last day!
Kevin has dominated the shorter distance Hong Kong trail scene since busting out in 2016 - and by "shorter distance", we mean sub 50K. He is the reigning King of the Hills as well as AVOHK Reservoir Series champ and loves that his T8 Commandos feel like "wrapping balls in cotton wool" 😏
Steve is better known as the brains and RD behind RunUltra's Best Australasian Race, the 9 Dragons 50/50, and possibly also stalking Gary Robbins. However, despite being an "average guy", he's also an accomplished runner, having completed the Hong Kong 100 in his first attempt and taking on the 100 miler UTMF in Japan later in 2018.
Birgir Saevarsson - Iceland
Birgir started running in 2002 after losing a 10K race to his father and now holds the Icelandic Masters Marathon record with 2:35. He loves trail running and is a guide for Arctic Running in Reykjavik. Turns out the T8 Commandos work great in the freezing cold as well!
Andy Dubois - Australia
Andy is a leading online ultra coach, coaching many of Hong Kong and Australia's elite ultra runners. He's thoughtful and very science-based. Andy is also a well credentialled runner himself, with a sub 29 hour UTMB finish and several 100 mile wins to his name.
Alex Ang - Singapore
After a knee surgery in 2013, Alex came to appreciate running a whole lot more and now runs for those who can't. He's taken on some crazy adventures like H1, UTMF twice, the Vietnam Mountain Marathon, UTA and 9 Dragons. He is super excited about T8, calls it "trail lingerie" and the best gear he has ever donned!
