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.  Now some races have started to come back and we are seeing some big efforts from the ultra marathon beasts, the mountain goats and those that might still have to run around the block in their local areas. 

If you want to be involved all you need to do is join the Hillbilly Endurance Run Crew on Strava by clicking the link.

Through our social media channels we will 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 beauty of running is that we can do it almost anywhere, we don't need races or events! So get out there train, push yourself and be ready for when the races and run groups come back, because the will!

 EPIC RUN OF THE WEEK

What a week for epic runs!  There was some racing so it made it harder to choose given the massive efforts put in by everyone that was able to get to an event this past week.  In the end we picked a massive 100km run through some pretty gnarly Victorian countryside for our epic run of the week.  

John Veugelers put together a run from Bacchus Marsh up to Daylesford taking in some beautiful Victorian countryside along the Great Dividing Trail.  John covered the 100km in 13 hours 51 minutes, which also consisted of over 2,500m of elevation.  The monster run took in the Lerderderg State Park, Wombat State Forest and a few laps of Lake Daylesford to bring up the ton.  Fantastic run on a Thursday John, we hope at least one of the day spas in Dayleford was open so you could enjoy a bit of luxurious recovery. 

Well done John, we'll be in touch to arrange your 25% discount voucher. 

Everyone remember to keep tagging us in your epic runs and achievements on social media so we don't accidentally miss them on our weekly Strava scan. Each week the winner gets a 25% off voucher.
