Run Leaders

 

Our Run Leaders are just as passionate about running as you are. They have a wide range of backgrounds and running experience, which gives South Bank Runners the ability to cater for runners of all abilities.

Part competitor, part tour guide Jade can tell you where to run and which Strava segments to hit on the way. This loyal local sees Brisbane as a blank canvas for running opportunities. An advocate for active recovery, she will encourage you to make the most of your rest days, dusting off your foam roller so you are primed to train at your peak.

Chris Hand

🍺 Favorite Drink:

πŸ” Favorite Post Run Meal:

πŸƒ Favourite Race:
Queenstown Marathon

😍 Other Hobbies:
Travelling

Chris is a sucker for punishment. He finishes a marathon and before he has even collected the medal he is thinking about running the next one. Clocking up over 10 marathons across the world he brings a wealth of knowledge in Distance Running to South Bank Runners. Like all Run Leaders, he is very willing to share his knowledge - both the good advice and the stories of suffering!

Sharon Leaver

🍺 Favorite Drink:
Wine

πŸ” Favorite Post Run Meal:
Food

πŸƒ Favourite Race:
GC Half

😍 Other Hobbies:
Spending time in the US

Sharon should have been spelt Sharun, such is Shazs’ love of running. If you’re lacking a bit of motivation get in beside Shaz and have a chat, before you know it you’ll be on the warm down. Shazs’ enthusiasm spreads through the group, and thankfully her motherly qualities help to keep the couple of lunatics in check....sometimes!

Benjamin Leaver

🍺 Favorite Drink:
Anything alcoholic

πŸ” Favorite Post Run Meal:
Good food with good service

πŸƒ Favourite Race:
Hawaii Hapalua Half Marathon

😍 Other Hobbies:
Skiing

Definitely inspired more by the social side of SBR, Ben can tell you the best spot in most areas to grab a cold ale. But don’t let that fool you, he is 100% an A type person who loves a challenge and will push you to your best.

Prefers shorter distances runs ( to the pub) but is growing to love longer.....😬😬😬

Nathan Eades

🍺 Stone & Wood Pale Ale

πŸ” Taro’s Ramen

πŸƒ Ironman NZ

😍 Golf

I did an Ironman. I have Attention Deficit Disorder, it’s not that I can’t focus, I just get anxious when I’m not receiving attention so being a run leader will help to have people focused on ME. When I’m not exercising I like kicking the footy, even by myself. I did an Ironman. My mate is the other Nathan, you would never guess it but he’s older than me, I like telling people this, it masks my insecurities and gives me a few moments of joy that I can’t get elsewhere. Did I mention I did an Ironman?

Nathan Young

🍺 Coopers Sparkling

πŸ” Ramen

πŸƒ Ironman NZ

😍 Sports, Cooking

My very few mates I have call me Young. Not because I am, because that’s my surname. I don’t use my first name because I can’t spell it. I don’t really have much else to say because I’m really boring. Not sure how I can be a run leader when everyone is in front of me but I joined the group just to have some friends.

Pablo Riveros

🍺 Asahi Super Dry

πŸ” Salmon

πŸƒ Snow Running, Patagonia-Chile

😍 Netflix, Technology and Nanoblock

If I am not running or watching netflix, I am doing some Google reviews for local restaurants or business. I am passionate about tech gadgets and a loyal Apple fan. In fact, I got the first generation White-Macbook back in 2006! and I hope soon to control 100% of my home suppliers using SIRI and my iPhone... yeah I am little crazy for tech. Say "Hola" if you see me around and try to catch me in our speed sessions.

Shane Mathews

🍺 Asahi Super Dry

πŸ” Pancakes

πŸƒ Gold Coast Half Marathon

😍 Running is life!

Shane is the top dog of the group. He can be frighteningly fast but is super consistent. Tuck in behind him and hang on if you can!

Cam Stuart

🍺 Favorite Drink:
Little Creatures Pale Ale

πŸ” Favorite Post Run Meal:
Too many to list - I’ll eat anything!

πŸƒ Favourite Race:
I love a humble park run!

😍 Other Hobbies:
Drinking beer / Anything sport related

Don’t let appearances fool you, despite looking slower than a wet week on the road, Cam goes alright in the heavyweight category. β€˜Classic’ as he is known in close circles is not known for consistency out on the pitch which has also earned him the nickname Dynamite due to an explosive start which slowly tapers off to nothing. Any excuse for a bit of friendly competition is is more than enough to get Classic interested so if you hear heavy fast feet coming you can bet Cam will be giving it his all!

Nicole Anskaitis

🍺 Favorite Drink:
Pina Colada

πŸ” Favorite Post Run Meal:
Pad Thai & Chocolate

πŸƒ Favourite Race:
Bells Bash, Torquay, VIC

😍 Other Hobbies:
Trying the next best cafe and going to the beach!

I tried pronouncing her last name once and someone said "bless you", so everyone just calls this lovely Nic. With a warm cheeky smile, Nic is a refreshing face to see at the session, however the smile turns to a steely eyed focus as soon as the stopwatch starts. Coming from a track background, Nic is as competitive as they come and she can fly, always giving it her all every workout and race. Like a majority of the SBR crew, Nic loves the social get togethers and is great for a laugh when she gets that "sparkle" in her eyes. Like everyone, you'll love Nic, she's a ripper.

William Tandy

🍺 Favorite Drink:
Probably terrible hand pumped warm beer

πŸ” Favorite Post Run Meal:
Chicken Madras

πŸƒ Favourite Race:
Cardiff Half Marathon

😍 Other Hobbies:
Playing music and watching rugby union

William, Bill or Will, Tandyman, and even β€œJay-car” - no one really or knows or cares, but we arrived at Billiam. This limey has made the hop skip and jump to join his convict ancestors in the land down under. Despite being a pom, Billiam is a proper English gentleman and a friendly face we look forward to having at our sessions which he never skives off. Trying to keep up with Bill you stand about as much chance as a paddle pop in the summer sun, this bloke is fast and regularly features in the top 10 at Parkruns all around the river city.
