Trail Running Collection - As Worn By Triathlete Callum Stedman

Kristin Kennedy-Brown - October 13, 2023

Go the Distance in our Men's Running clothing collection - as worn by British Triathlete prospecting Olympian Callum Stedman. After suffering from Structural Heart Disease and Left Ventricular Hypertrophy, Stedman never thought he would be able to train properly again - yet just 25 weeks post diagnosis, he is back competing in the Great Britain World Triathlon, whilst studying at Loughborough University. 

Crafted for enhanced breathability, our Trail running clothing collection features lightweight fabrics, mesh ventilation and laser-cut Halo eyelets in key sweat zones. Ergonomically placed seams prioritise flexibility where you need it most, so you can move over unpredictable terrain and reach new heights. While strategically placed reflective detailing ensures optimum visibility in low light settings, so don’t have to compromise performance when the evening draws in. 

We caught up with Callum Stedman, the face of our trail campaign to chat through his journey into triathlon training, overcoming setbacks and channeling a winning mentality. Read on to learn more...

Tell us a little bit about your journey into Triathlon training? How did you get into multi-discipline training?

I started competitive swimming at the age of 7. Then while at secondary school I competed in my first triathlon. I was around 14/15. When I was handed my first medal, I was told by a professional to continue competing - it all snowballed from there really. 

How important is mindset training to performance?

Mindset is key for sport. I would say it’s a lot more mental than physical. There are a lot of people out there with existing talent who don’t have the discipline or determination to push themself day after day, week-after-week, month-after-month in training.

How would you say that you channel a winning mentality?

I stay determined by continually wanting to push myself to the limit. I remain determined by watching all of the hard work of myself and those around me coming to fruition. 

What does your day-to-day look like?

Everyday is a double day training wise, it’s normally swimming and then either followed by the bike or running. We can also have triple days where we do swim, bike and run or swim, gym and bike/run. It’s great because it always varies day-to-day.

What inspires your craft? Who are your idols?

I would say within triathlon my idols would be Alex Yee, Matt Hauser and Vincent Luis. But outside I’d have to say my mum, dad and sister Maysie are a massive influence for me as we are all really close. And of course, my first and current run coach Tony Witmond. 

Finally, what is the one moto you live by?

One moto I live by and the thing I think of when overcoming set backs is: “It isn’t about how hard you can hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward” I’ve always loved this saying because it’s helped me get through some hard times in and out of sport.
