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 we're now well over 350.  Thank you to everyone that has got themselves 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.

Righto the Epic Run of the Week this week goes the 160km effort at the Hurbert 100.  We mentioned him before; it’s Brad Tilley.  

Brad took on the 100mile event at Hurbert 100, the longest of the four distances on offer.  The 100mile course is kind of out-and back route that goes through the Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park in South Australia.  The course does deviate on the way back for a while before re-connecting with the ‘out’ part of the course.  

The Hubert 100 start line is around 150km north east of Port Augusta and for the most part that area looks like desert full of red dirt.  The Ikara-Flinders Ranges does have some vegetation, but it still looks very desert-like judging by the satellite images.  Brad took on and conquered the 100 mile event and I’m sure he had some support and company from some of the awesome crew from the Millicent Runners in SA.  

Well done Brad on a great accomplishment in finishing the race and I’d love to hear more about the Hurbert 100, I think it might be one to put on the race bucket list.  We will be in touch to hook you up with a 25% off discount to use at hillbillyendurance.com.au 

We’re sure to see some fantastic runs over the next few months with a pretty stacked racing calendar.  Make sure you let us know about your epic runs by tagging @hillbillyendurance in your Facebook and Instagram posts or even send as a message with a link to your Strava if you don’t want to post on socials.  

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!
