MARK GREEN FROM THE BODY MECHANIC

Mark owns and runs The Body Mechanic, a physiotherapy practice in Lavender Bay, Sydney, which specialises in the treatment and rehabilitation of runners, cyclists and triathletes. Mark studied physiotherapy at Otago University in New Zealand, graduating in 1996. Since that time he has worked in New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Australia, becoming an expert in the prevention and management of running-related injuries.

Mark has been a competitive trail runner since the age of 16, when he completed his first 60km race the Kepler Challenge. In 2016 he won Ultra-Trail Australia 50, placed 3rd in the Mount Solitary Ultra and 4th in the Six Foot Track Marathon. In 2015 he placed 2nd in the Kepler Challenge, 3rd in The Six Foot Track Marathon, 2nd in the Mount Solitary Ultra, and 7th in TNF100 - Australia. This combination of working as a sports-based physiotherapist for nearly 20 years, and competing at the top level in trail running for 25 years, gives Mark a thorough understanding of the demands and stresses that you put your body under when running ultra distance events.
