Mat Lock

Ultra Distance Endurance Athlete

BIO

Mat presents himself as just an everyday guy that’s made a decision to live an extraordinary life. His relatively late entrance into ultra distance multisport racing and adoption of a plant based diet have seen him transform his mind, body and spirit; from a lethargic, overweight corporate captor to an energized, entrepreneurial force for good.


After more than two decades of business travel that caused Mat to call four continents ‘home’ he’s now settled in Jervis Bay [Sydney] with his amazing Australian wife, Neridah, and their small army of cats. As someone who also competes in ultra distance racing, Neridah is Mat’s best mate and confidante [but always ready to ‘say it how it is’ when needed…].

Career Highlights

1st place Craze 101km ultra-marathon in Singapore

3rd place at Ultra 520k Canada

2 x RAAM finisher [2nd place, mixed 4 person team].

WHAT IS YOUR MORE?

Everyday Guy Podcast

In the spirit of representing More Than Sport, Mat hosts the ‘Everyday Guy Podcast’ as a way to extend the reach of this amazing organization within the athletic community. Each week he goes ‘all in’ with everyday guys and gals from around the world who seem to do the impossible by balancing work and family life to achieve extraordinary results in their chosen sport. These unscripted and intimate conversations provide a ‘behind the scenes’ look into training, mindset, nutrition, work-life balance and making a difference in the world.

Mat believes it’s about more than sport; it’s about everyday athletes being extraordinary humans.
