We train smart, run strong and race harder. We are a small team of ultra runners on the edge of our limits.
Determined. Courageous. Satisfied.
Three is the magic number. 3 x Western States top ten. 3 in a row wins at the iconic West Highland Way. Wins across 3 continents. Paul Giblin is the Pyllon pioneer. An ultra-runner who has medalled at World level with Great Britain on road and in mountains, his passion for pushing the limits of his own ability and helping others do so is ingrained in his DNA.
Only 2 years on from realising his potential, James was selected to run for his country (at 100K distance), he won the prestigious West Highland Way race as well excelling at the tough 24-hour format on both trail and track.
Kaz has been racing ultras for over 5 years after dropping herself in at the deep-end, running the incredibly tough CCC race (part of the UTMB 'festival'). With the Alps as her training ground, Kaz also has a love of the american trail running scene and has already raced a number of 100-milers in the U.S.
When it comes down to encouragement and having your back, John Connolly is an absolute role model and a lynchpin of the Pyllon family. The Glen Lyon course record holder and winner of the SVP100k amongst other events, John is built for the mountains and at home in the clouds.
Robert has proven to be a ferocious competitor over the last couple of years. As well as winning the GB national championship over 100k in 2018, Rob has represented Scotland and Great Britain over the same distance with a current PB of 6:51:49. He races smart and trains like a machine.
There is tough and there is Grant MacDonald. The Glasgow based runner famously recovered from a brain haemorrhage to win Scotland vests, qualify for the GB 24 hour squad, and finish 2nd in the Spine Challenger. A true example to others in determination and focus. Comfortable on road, trail, track and mountains.
It takes a special kind of runner to go and do the Hardmoors 160. It takes an even more special one to then go and win it. Now, Chris Cowley did that. Then he did something extra special. He continued on his Hardmoors journey the following year by running the 200. And he won that too.
Not only has Marco won some of the most prestigious races in the UK in Lakeland 100 and Tooting Bec 24, he’s represented Scotland and Great Britain numerous times and has won team medals at World and European level over 24 hours.
A lifetime of engineering has instilled a discipline and determination in Graham Connolly which shines through in his approach to training and racing. With multiple wins and podiums across some of Scotland’s best known races he is one worth watching. When he commits, Graham leaves no stone unturned.
