Meet the 022 Team:
Kia ora koutou!
I'm Michelle, based in the MIGHTY Manawatu with a mountain bike crazy husband and two teens. I'm a lover of trail running and adventure - the muddier the better! I thoroughly enjoy getting off the beaten track and discovering what our beautiful country has to offer. I'm also often found running with various local groups and participating in trail running events, and yes, I am usually the one posing for a selfie, haha! I'm all for sharing running stories, supporting others on their own journey, and celebrating success big or small!

Hey my name's Michelle Rennie from lil old Gizzy. I'm a mother of two busy boys, a fitness trainer, the wife of a beekeeper, a crazy trail loving outdoor gal! In a previous life I was a full time athlete competing for Cycling at the Olympics Games. These days my biggest passion is empowering others to be healthy & active. I run a fitness business called 'The Cardio Coach' where I get to do what I love & love what I do everyday. I use Tailwind nutrition to fuel my body when running & just love it. I am super stoked to be part of the 022 ambassador program. Bring it on!!

Hi all. I'm Lewis Marama. I'm a 44 year old IT professional and father of 2 boys based in Palmerston North,
I started running in January 2018 as a way to help with my mental health and to lose weight. I have fully embraced the running ethos and love getting out there.Trails are where you will usually find me as I love the peace and connecting with nature as well as the time spent with my running family.
I'm passionate about mental health, dabble in home brewing and love a good craft beer and conversations with friends.
You can find me on Instagram and Facebook under @fat_dad_to_50k
See you on the trails!
Hi my name is Taye Pugh. I am married and a father to two young girls.
I live in Christchurch where I work as a Police Officer.
I enjoy a cold beer, a good yarn and love a good dad joke.
5 years ago I discovered the joy of trail running. Since then I have competed in numerous events, the enjoyment of training and discovering new tracks and trails in our amazing country keeps me always searching for the next challenge.
Through my passion for the outdoors my hope is that it inspires my children and anyone else that I come into contact with, to live a more balanced and active life.
Super stoked to be an Ambassador for 022.

Hi I'm Cindy, from the winterless north. I'm mum to 2 grown girls and wife to a busy chippy plus we're paintball field owners! My running journey started back in 2013/2014 with running the New York Marathon. I'm not biased, I equally love road AND trail events and you'll usually find me at the back of the pack getting my monies worth. Tailwind has been my saviour on those long days out and I'm pretty proud of my Lily Trotters collection. I'm proud to be repping the over 50's and to be an ambassador for 022.

My name's Sean and I'm a science-teaching, trail-running dad of 2 from Rotorua. I'm lucky enough to live in an absolute paradise for outdoors action, and with Whakarewarewa Forest right on our doorstep you'll most likely spot me on two feet (or flat on my face!), somewhere out there. I've always loved being in the outdoors, but a busy life in the big city lead to a bit of a disconnect; discovering trail running a few years ago has reignited this love, and enabled me to see parts of our beautiful country that I might not have otherwise. I'm also have the good fortune to have two healthy, energetic kids who love being in the forest as well. I'm really looking forward to working with the 022 crew; I've been using their products (mainly Tailwind and Goodr) for a few years now, and not only do they supply great brands they also have a great outlook and are hugely supportive of so many great events and individuals in Aotearoa.
See you out there!
