About Resolute Running

Resolute Running aims to deliver events that are inclusive of all runners of any ability, while providing an opportunity for people to push themselves beyond what they thought possible. This is where our event concept comes into play; timed, looped events with no limit on how far you can run! Our event locations are both scenic and challenging and we're all about getting back outdoors and into nature, while still keep things accessible.


We aim to promote the value of community, the importance of mental health and the power of movement. Bringing likeminded people together to take on a challenge like The Ultra Loop creates a powerful sense of community and comradery, and the positive impact this has is on the running community is by far the biggest reward.


How It Started

My name is Alex, and the story of Resolute Running doesn't just come from a love for running, it comes from a need for running! In my early twenties, my mental health wasn't something I was taking care of, and for various reasons I began to have frequent panic attacks to a point where I could barely leave my home. 


To improve my situation, I started running. It was the only way I could get out of the front door with real purpose. There was a park just a few streets away from my house, which was an exact 1km loop. I began my journey of facing what had become agoraphobia by running this loop again and again. 


So, as my love for running developed and I started to run longer distances, I began to look at what events were in my local area. I saw that many ultra-distance events took runners far away from home, and as a person still dealing with the agoraphobia, these races that would have put me so far out of my comfort zone seemed impossible. 


It got me thinking, how can I run an ultra-distance event, without having to run in completely unfamiliar surroundings. I thought back to the beginning of my running journey, running loops around the park. This lead to the idea of The Ultra Loop, my first event series.
