Simon Ward, The High Performance Human Triathlon Podcast

12 years, 33 events and two men left standing * Gary Goacher & Graham Yare

September 21, 2022

This weekend sees the final Outlaw event of 2022, Outlaw X.

To this date, there are only two men who have completed every single Outlaw triathlon starting with the first Outlaw full in 2010. 

During that time, Gary Goacher and Graham Yare have completed 32 Outlaw races and have become known in the Outlaw family as “The Last Men Standing”.

This is no easy task! The series has grown from one event to five and with each passing year the task of staying healthy, training for, racing, and then recovering from each race becomes that little bit harder. Prior to this weekend's event, I took the time to sit down with Gary and Graham to talk about their Outlaw journey and how it has shaped the last 12 years of their life, including:

  • How it all started
  • A growing friendship
  • What happens when the streak is broken
  • Planning family holidays around races
  • Overcoming illness and injury to get to the start line
