Jace Brown: From Rugby League to Duathlon Glory

Jace Brown: From Rugby League to Duathlon Glory

Meet Jace Brown, a Sydney-based Aussie athlete who's making waves in the world of duathlon. A former full-time rugby league player in France, Jace found himself craving the adrenaline rush of competition and having something to train for, after hanging up his cleats.  It was during this time that he stumbled upon the world of triathlon, thanks to some encouraging mates. And the rest, as they say, is history.

For Jace, triathlon isn’t just about crossing the finish line; “it’s truly about finding purpose in the grind”, said Jace. Whether it's the crack of dawn swim sessions or the late-night bike rides, every moment spent training fuels his passion for the sport.

“I think humans are generally on a path of progression and among many things in life, I find a sense of purpose in triathlon.  If you’re not consistently showing up and doing the work, the reward is probably thin. I like the honesty in that and the many great values triathlon instills,” shared Jace. 

Conquering Challenges, One Race at a Time

Despite facing numerous setbacks, including over 10 surgeries from his rugby days - and the occasional flare up, Jace has emerged stronger than ever. Injuries may have slowed him down at times, but it hasn't stopped him. With a well-managed strength program and a relentless spirit, he's pushing past the pain and chasing his dreams.

From triathlons to duathlons, crits to aquathlons, Jace has tackled them all. His proudest moment? Representing Team Australia at the Hamburg World Triathlon Championships in 2023. But that's just the beginning. With first-place finishes at the NSW Duathlon State Champs and the Victoria Aquathlon State Champs under his belt, Jace is setting his sights even higher.

When asked what he likes most about Purpose apparel he said,  “I was drawn to the brand's innovative technology and commitment to promoting healthier lifestyles and I saw an opportunity to make a difference on a larger scale.”

“Statistically, we are the unhealthiest, unhappiest generation of humans to have ever roamed the earth, so if we can help bring people together and promote healthier lifestyles, that’s a great contribution to the world,” said Jace.

For Jace,it’s not just about the gear. It's about embodying the values of inclusivity, resilience, and community. By sharing his journey and leading by example, he hopes to inspire others to chase their own dreams, one step at a time.

Life Beyond the Finish Line

When he's not busy conquering races, Jace enjoys hitting the waves for a spot of surfing or strumming away on his guitar. It's all about finding balance and embracing life's adventures, on and off the course.

For anyone considering dipping their toes into the world of endurance sports, Jace has some sage advice: “Surround yourself with like-minded individuals, take it slow, and never underestimate the power of perseverance. After all, progress is a decision—and I can do it, so can you.” 

And there you have it, folks—the inspiring story of Jace Brown, a true Aussie champion both on and off the track. Keep an eye out for this rising star, because something tells us his journey is far from over.
