HighCast 042 – Barry Smith

Barry is a highlands local and co-founder of Bowral Parkrun and Highlands Triathlon Club.

Barry is a quiet, unassuming guy. By day he is a dentist, you can tell he really cares about his children, family and creating environments for them to be health and happy. I admire that. We don’t celebrate everyday hero’s like Barry enough, we’re so focussed on celebrity and mediocrity that we forget that community is built by people like Barry and we’re all better for it.

Barry either plays it down or truly doesn’t realise the impact he’s had on highlands community. Through establishing the local parkrun and triathlon club he’s brought health and adventure to so many peoples lives.

If we all had half the impact that Barry has had the world would truly be an amazing place.

Thanks for being a guest on HighCast Barry!
