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 over 500 runners!  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.

There’s a few honourable mentions this week for the Epic Run of the Week.  Firstly Shelly Marie took out the win in the 15km Run the Range in Toowoomba and was crowned Queen of the Mountain.  Reesha Lewis took the win and broke the course record in the West Macs Monster 128km along the Larapinta Trail in Alice Springs. 

The winner of the Epic Run of the week this week though is Nicholas Bamford.  We know Nicholas is a quality ultra runner and has put together some great wins in the last couple of years, but 231km with over 6,800m of elevation in the red centre of Australia is something pretty Epic.  The 231km event at West Mac Monster is called the Sonder Monster, as the race starts with an 8km climb up Mt Sonder which has 740m of elevation!  A great way to get the legs ready for the last 223km…. A really tough course through some spectacular scenery, the Sonder Monster certainly takes its toll on the competitors though, with only 7 runners finishing the event this year. The first of those was Nicholas and that’s why he is our Epic Run of the Week Winner!
