Dan MacPherson


While Dan is probably best known for his career as an Australian actor and TV presenter, he is also an accomplished triathlete, ironman and marathon runner.

Growing up in the Sydney beachside suburb of Cronulla, MacPherson began competing in the sport of triathlon at age 11.

After finding success at the shorter distance event, MacPherson went onto tackle the challenging Ironman events, and has competed in five Ironman events including the world famous Hawaiian Ironman in 2009, finishing the gruelling course in a time of 10.5 hours!

MacPherson has been a long-time supporter of the Indigenous Marathon Project, and met up with the team at the Gold Coast Running Festival in July, where he ran the marathon.
