Ultra Marathoner Runs With Aussie Fit Heart Rate Monitor

One of Australia’s fittest kids was in the office today – Jack Sinclair heads off next week to begin his incredible solo 27 day, 1,200 km run around Tasmania.

  • Jack cycled across Australia – 4,500 kms in 30 days – at age 15.
  • Ran his first marathon at 17 yo.
  • Won the 96 km Kokoda Challenge and broke the schoolboy record at 17.
  • And now, at 18 yo, is off to run around Tasmania. Wow!

Diana of Aussie Fit presents Jack with the Pulse QT Heart Rate Monitor

Jack swears by heart rate monitoring as a key performance indicator for his training and running and dropped by to pick up his latest watch.

Jack will be using a Pulse QT Pedometer Strapless Heart Rate Monitor for the run to give him the data essential to a successful trip.

ECG Accurate Information For The Right Decisions

“The most important data I get during my running is my heart rate – I know what my heart rate needs to be so that I’m able to sustain ultra-marathon distances day in and day out.

With the Pulse Heart Rate Monitor I get ECG accurate information so I can make the right decisions all the time. And no rubbing strap around the chest.

It’s my most important bit of equipment………………. apart from my running shoes….and shorts!” said Jack.

Good luck Jack and run safe.

  • the youngest person ever to cycle across Australia
  • won the school events 96 km Kokoda Challenge last year – in record time
  • ran his first marathon at just 16
  • is about to embark on a 1,200 km solo run around Tasmania – he’s running more than a marathon a day for 27 days straight!
