One of the founders of Zeus, Gavin has been racing for 18 years starting with Tough Guy. In 2015 he completed a staggering 62 events including representing the UK at the World Championships in Ohio, U.S. Gavin qualified this year for the OCR World Championships in his age group for two of the distances and will also run in the charity race, the ninja race and the team event.
Jason only began his racing in 2015 with The Suffering, but soon caught the OCR bug winning The Wolf Run in 2016 followed by many more including Farmageddon, the Twilight Run, Iron Run, King of the Hill, Muddy Furlong and even Zeus in 2018. He also qualified for the OCR World Championships in 2018 and 2019 and is also the 2019 porridge eating champion!
Monika aka the Crazy Russian is a mum and a PT by day and began her OCR journey with the Ram Run 24k in 2015 before going on to finish more than 100 events over the following years.
She savours the hill and speed sections of the courses but is less of a fan of the strength and carry challenges but is training hard to remedy that!
Amy joins the Zeus Elite Team as a qualifier for the OCR World Championships in 2018 and 2019. She started racing back in 2012 with the Scorpion Run and says that her favourite events are Nuclear Rush and Zeus of course! She loves the technical sections particularly the rigs but gets slowed down with the carries and long hills. When not out training, Amy is a veterinary nurse.
Darren has 69 races under his belt, his best being the 2017 World Championships in Canada. He started out on the Spartan course back in 2013 and counts Nuclear Blackout as one of his favourites. As well as Canada, Darren also made it to the European Championships in the same year. He's a fan of the strength and carrying sections but the hills and technical obstacles are less fun!
