John Stanton

My running and busy lifestyle demands I have loads of energy. A couple of slices of Silver Hills' The Big 16 starts my day as a runner.

— John Stanton, Running Room Founder

John's Story

Running Room founder, John Stanton, hasn't always been a running machine. As a former two-pack-a-day smoker, John was overweight and out of shape. But in 1981, after struggling through a 3-km fun run with his sons and seeing the look of concern in their eyes, John was inspired to make a complete lifestyle change. Today, with over 60 marathons under his belt, John loves the protein of The Big 16 to give him the energy he needs for both running and motivating thousands of people to adopt healthier lifestyles.
