The inspiration behind the name
We're often asked, "Where did the name V&B Athletic come from?"
Meet Vicki Griffiths and Barb Macklow, two incredibly inspiring ultramarathoners. In this short video, they talk about their experiences and philosophies of running and training for 100-mile endurance runs.
DJ and Jase came across their story in early 2011 just as their own ultramarathon experiences were beginning and immediately recognised similarities. More than just training partners, these two ladies are also great friends. Enjoy!
