All About ActiveEquip
Hi, I'm Sarah!
I am the Chief Cheerleader at ActiveEquip. I am a super passionate ultimate back of the pack trail runner (becuase that is where the party is!) that has a love hate relationship with ultra running.
I log a lot of k's on the treadmill and road alike and believe that every single runner, this means YOU, deserves to be supported, cheered and helped to achieve their goals - no matter what they are!
ActiveEquip was born out of a passion to be able to train hard, run safe and be supported no matter what time of day I chose to run or where my feet take me.
Too many close calls for comfort
I had a couple of super close calls, some really scary near misses, with cars and crossing the road at pedestrian crossings and other runners and cyclists over a Melbourne winter. These scared the crap out of me, to be honest.
I figured there had to be a solution to them not seeing me; I just had to find it.
Some Google searching later I discovered Glimmer Gear and wanted to nab some to solve my problem of not being spotted. Here began the adventure of brining Glimmer Gear to Australia.
Your kit should never limit you
Our favorite adventures are out on the trail which is why the majority of our kit is geared towards trail runners, but we don’t feel limited by our adventures and are always up for a challenge as long as we approach it with humor and optimism. So you will find an assortment of running gear safety kit no matter how you choose to run – or be like us and
don't let yourself be defined by everyone else.
With our ultimate goal to run safe we have hand picked a range of items (Proviz, Petzl, Buff, Ultimate Direction and so much more!) to keep you running safe so you can keep repeating the running adventures!
our ultimate goal - to run and make it home
This is what we want for every single one of our team (HUGE shoutout to our family here for being THE team!) and every single individual that says hi, shops with us, visits us online or has a chin wag with us at an event.
Our hand picked - run tested by us - range that we LOVE - is all geared to you running your way, running safe, helping you make it home - so you can do it all again!
The Seriously Awesome Team
We are small, but we are big in spirit, determination, support, and fun. Home base is Greensborough in Melbourne's North East and this is where ActiveEquip HQ is.
I’m Sarah, and most of the time it’s me you will interact with – yep seriously! Especially if you Facebook, Instagram, Website Chat or email us! I am the type of person that wants everyone to enjoy what they do, have a good time, and be happy about it (and yes I know what it’s like to suffer and be in the pain cave). I want to hear your stories, experiences, losses, and wins. I am a runner, swimmer, past Pilates instructor, and a generally outdoor active person.
At events and occasionally online or over the phone, you will come across my husband Pete, my parents Chris and Vic, our awesome friend Elise and let’s not forget the team mascot and supervisor PJ Mouse – I couldn’t do any of this without them!
Never be afraid to come and say hi
to us when we are at an event, or even if you see us out and about training. You are likely to see us at aid stations, behind the scenes helping at events, out on course, at finish lines, and on the sidelines cheering and supporting
Why? Cause we LOVE it!
Until we see you out and about, train hard, train well, but make sure you train safe, cause we want to celebrate adventures with you!
