Introducing our special guest and new Fat Farmers Ambassador - Luke Barlow!
Luke is a farmer at Moama, near Echuca in Victoria. He didn't play any sport as a kid because the family farm was a fair way out of town and his parents felt that travel for sport would take too much time away from the farm. But then in 2016, at the age of 42, he started training and ran the Melbourne Marathon (42km) with his wife Kate! This experience inspired him to join the Echuca Triathlon Club and he found the combination of swimming, cycling and running more to his liking. In 2022 he even completed the Ultraman endurance event held over 3 days! Luke has been a big supporter of Fat Farmers for quite some time (hence the singlet!) and he hopes that sharing his story of going from not exercising at all to running a marathon aged 42 will help inspire other blokes to get motivated and up off the couch, even if they are happy to leave "the crazy stuff" to others like him. "If it just gives someone a push to go for a parkrun or go to the gym or join a Fat Farmers group that would be awesome" he says. We are delighted that Luke and Kate will be our special guests at this year’s City to Bay!
