Hillbilly Endurance Run Crew


HILLBILLY ENDURANCE RUN CREW -  VIRTUAL RUNS & LEADERBOARDS

Originally we created this as a way to keep motivated when all the races were postponed or cancelled.  The response has been unreal and it's been awesome seeing the group grow.  We stated with about 60 people in the group and now we're over 400.  Thank you to everyone that has got involved! 

If you want to be involved all you need to do is join the Hillbilly Endurance Run Crew on Strava by clicking the link.  Also join our Facebook group to meet likeminded runners and talk general running chit-chat.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/2502535149976788/

Through our social media channels we provide updates each week on the crew and those that are still training the house down even when no one knows when the next race is. The leader board below will be maintained each week and if we see something truly impressive we'll give you a shout out! To helps identify the runs that you are super proud of (it's alright to brag when you achieve something and we want to help you brag too!) tag us in your Strava, Instagram and Facebook posts about your runs, @hillbillyendurance.

The winner this week does come from an event at Blackall, but the 50km not the 100km event.  Our Epic Run of the Week was Mel Hayley’s run in the 50km.  This was Mel’s first trail ultra and you know that we love seeing people taking that step into the unknown, breaking through those barriers and doubt to go further than they’ve ever run before.  For most of us, this is the challenge in running a new distance PB, whether it’s completing a Parkrun without stopping, your first half or full marathon and then pushing the distances whether it’s 50km, 100km, 100 or 200 miles or even further.  For us here, that’s what we think running is all about and that’s what we think makes Mel’s run so epic. 

Congratulations Mel on your first 50km trail ultra and what a spectacular race to choose to do it! We will be in touch to hook you up with a 25% off discount to use in our online store. 

We will again be picking an Epic Run of the Year and sending out a prize pack.  We will pick the winner from our weekly winners so make sure you let us know about your runs!
