Paolo Toua

I am a normal guy by day with an abnormal passion for all things active as soon as the office closes. I live to train and enjoy every second of it, through the pain and through the pleasure of the rewards at the end of the race!

My sporting career started playing high-level club soccer from the age of 12.  My true running journey began in early 2017 when I signed up for a 10km night run for “the fun of it” with some mates and discovered the absolute euphoria of running and I fell in love. Seven months later and I had been doing every Trail, 5km, 10km & half marathon I could get an entry for and actually doing well in them, either placing top 3 or actually taking the win. I realized I not only had a passion for this but also a talent for running and running fast. 

Later that year I got invited to do the Woolworths charity sprint off-road triathlon and came in 2nd in my age group and the “tri-bug” had bitten.

I dropped everything, bought a bicycle, jumped in the pool and began my journey as an out and out triathlete & I have never looked back taking podiums in 3 of the 4 major races this year, coupled with all my running races.
