Michael Ormiston, Co-Founder of RaceBase
“I used clarity the first time in preparation for my UTMB race in 2015 and had a fantastic experience. What I love about it is that it keeps me alert without any nasty peaks or troughs like caffeinated gels or coffee can give you. clarity now forms part of my mandatory gear for any ultra or endurance races I am competing in.”
Michael is the former Country Head of Regus Hong Kong, for whom he has been working for almost a decade. Overall he gained over 18 years of Asia Pacific and Emerging Markets experience in his current and previous positions.
On top of a demanding job Michael trains 10-15 hours per week either running, cycling or swimming. A keen ultra runner, Michael discovered clarity while training for Ultra-trail de Mont Blanc (UTMB), one of the worlds toughest 100 mile ultras with over 10,000-meter elevation – which he finished in the top 100 in 29.39hrs. He explains that ultra runners experience what they call “sleep monsters” during their races - basically falling asleep while competing, which is no surprise when competing more than 30 hours of non-stop at times!
Michael holds a degree from the University of Canberra and The Australian National University.
