WHO IS BEHIND OUTRUN CANCER? MEET THE ROCKSTAR TEAM

We talk the talk and RUN the walk!
OUTRUN CANCER could not exist without the continuos support, energy and work of our team that offer their spare time in support to the cause.
We tried to do it as a single man show but we were going nowhere. We embraced the culture of working together and we rediscovered how much fun and rewarding it is and what a massive difference we can make.
Hail to THE TEAM – you rock!

Interested in joining? Great! Let’s go for a run to discuss more!


LUCA TURRINI – OC Founder, #OCTM Coordinator and runner

Luca

Luca is a strong believer that ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things.
He is known to excite and inspire friends to sign up for marathons and crazy challenges, so he has an excuse to join them.

TERENCE BELL – Advisor and Crazy Running Team honour member

Terence Bell

Terence is an avid explorer and lover of all things green. He is happiest playing in the outdoor world, especially swimming in the deep blue, scaling jagged rocks and running wild frontiers. He is a believer in inner silence yet also loves the sound of chopping coconuts.

Wellness is at the core of his purpose and his life revolves around the simplicity of less is more. He is inspired by courageous people living their dreams and can recite backwards the following mottos: Stay young, stay foolish.

BRAD SUTTON – #OCTM Event Coordinator and Triathlon lover

Brad Sutton

Brad is a supporter of OUTRUN CANCER and a regular Corporate Treadmill Marathon participant.
He is a big sufferer of F.O.M.O. (Fear Of Missing Out), which leads to him regularly signing up for Ironman Triathlons and Ultra-marathons, once his friends sign up.
He needs new friends.

JUAN FELIPE RIOS – #OCTM Marketing and soon to be runner

Juan Felipe Rios

Rios’ motto is to always go the extra mile no matter how small or big the challenge may be.
His true inspiration comes from the love for his wife, family and his faith. Things he can’t live without (besides his wife), are travelling, sports and learning.
Through his career, marketing, planning & strategy have become the pillars of how he now pursues his goals.

ANDREA CORREDOR RIOS – #OCTM Graphic Design & Social Media

Andrea

Considered a geek by many, Andrea has a passion for movies, music, art and sports (& her husband of course!).
She’s in a constant wanderlust, but keeps her feet on the ground by counting her blessings each day.

She’s running the extra mile for OC, hoping her feet will obey!
