It’s all about conditioning!

Tuesday, 8 May 2018 3:20:19 PM Australia/Sydney

t’s all about conditioning!

One of the biggest battles Skyrunners face when tackling the epic courses they’re confronted with is the fatigue caused by impact. The duration of the events are of course going to be a challenge to manage, as you have to get your nutrition and pace judgement right, but these are addressed in a lot of articles relating to trail and ultra running in general terms. What we’re talking about is something that’s more to be expected by those participating in Skyraces, where the major point of difference to your average trail run is the extreme amounts of vertical gain and loss you have to endure.

 Blue Mountains Running Company is a gear check shop, no appointment is necessary for us to check your gear, this is a free service. 

Once checked an official certificate is printed.

Please Note: There may be random gear checks during the event and if you are missing any item you will receive a time penalty. 

We carry a lot of Mandatory Gear for the UTA races, here are our top picks................................  

 Race UTA22  

This is the official link for the check list for the UTA22 Mandatory Gear List 


 

LONG SLEEVE THERMAL TOP (polypropylene, wool) 

We recommend our Icebreaker brand range for this category, the Mens version features sleeve holes for your thumb, made from a merino wool blend, as featured. 

For the Ladies long sleeve thermal we have several Icebreaker styles, some featuring a long zip some a crew top. 

Our top pick is the Icebreaker long sleeve Oasis Crew Field, featuring 100% Merino fabric.

 Waterproof and Breathable Jacket with Fully Taped (Not Critically Taped) Waterproof Seams and Hood

At Blue Mountains Running Company we have a large range of Waterproof rain jackets purpose designed for running available for both Men and Womens that meet the mandatory requirements.

We believe either th Salomon or the Ultimate Direction brand to be the best purpose designed running waterproof rain jacket, for value for money we recommend the brand Vigilante. 

Remember the rain jacket must be purpose designed for running, big bulky rain jackets are not suitable for this course, minimal underarm vents.

Ideally you need the most lightweight performance jacket with the best fit with fully seam sealed protection.

Take these factors into consideration when purchasing a jacket.

  • Best snug fit, while still allowing you to move.
  • The hood, try it on, is it adjustable, does it provide a visor so you can still see whilst running in the rain.
  • Lightweight, how well will this jacket fit in my pack.
  • Waterproof rating of 20,000g/m²/25hrs
  • Does it tick all the boxes for Mandatory requirements

Salomon Lightning or Bonati jacket are our top pick for this course.

Lightweight fabric that follows your movements, breathable weather protection plus minimalist details 

AdvancedSkin dry 2.5L and fitted hood are ready for harsh conditions PACKABILITY - Packs into its own chest pocket SPECIFICATIONS: Weight- 180 grams

Womens Waterproof Jacket selection: 

Mens Waterproof Jacket selection.

Remember The jacket must fit you. Plastic rain ponchos, wind jackets, water resistant jackets are NOT suitable.

You will only be required to carry this item if weather conditions are very cold or wet. A decision regarding this will be made at 1:30pm the day before the race and publicised at Race Check-In, via the event app and the event Facebook Page.

Hydration Vest Orange Mud

Thursday, 5 April 2018 3:42:18 PM Australia/Sydney

Newly arrived in store is the Orange Mud Hydration Vest in 1 litre and 2 litre bladder sizes.

We choose to stock the signature Orange Mud colour's of orange and black, the vest will certainly keep you stylish on the trails.

The Orange Mud Hydration vest, differs from our Ultimate Direction and Salomon Hydration packs in the fact the bladder is included in the product pricing and not an added expense.

The Hydration pack is made from highly breathable mesh and is recommended for the sport of trail running, ultra running and hiking.

Designed to fit friendly over your curves with adjustable straps, it comes in a one size fits all sizing.

The type of cargo you would put in the hydration pack would be your usual nutritional gels, phone, keys, tailored to your needs, there is a zippered pocket which will secure a key and a trecking pole attachment option, perfect for trail running and hiking.

We believe the addition of the Orange Mud Hydration Vest packs to our product range will provide an addtional option and price range for our trail running users.


Orange Mud Hydration VestOrange Mud Hydration Vest- 2L back view

 

Version 2.0 is now released! The Gear Vest was just launched in July of 17, but it was so popular that it sold out far ahead of schedule! A pretty cool problem! We made the front chest harness about 1.5" longer, added a dual sternum slider, and added front chest pockets.

The new slider gives more adjustability with ease, and the longer chest pockets mean any size flask up to 600ml will fit great, plus sized phones are super secure, and there is plenty of room for gear.

 

Who did we design this for? Runners, riders, hikers, paddlers, skiers and more. During any sport the Gear Vest is extremely stable to torsional, up and down, and fast movements. It tracks with your body and is very comfortable to wear.

Storage up front is designed around 600ml soft flasks (note that the new 450ml soft flasks are taller and don't fit as well), gloves, nutrition, or big smart phones. 

The rear bladder compartment can hold some extra gear around the bladder, but is focused on speed and breathability.

So not a lot of storage there. The shock cord on the back works great for holding a jacket or light layer. It's loaded with fun features that provide quick accessibility to gear on your chest, shoulders, and back.

 

  • Weight without bladder: 8.9oz
  • Bladder size: 1L (35oz) included
  • Made in: Vietnam
  • Sport focus: Trail and ultra-running, Mountain Biking, Hiking, SUP, Hiking, Skiing

Trail running is meant to be dirty!

Wednesday, 7 February 2018 10:20:57 AM Australia/Sydney

We all know a trail running can get dirty, running through the bush was never meant to be clean sport, but we have the solution to keep the bush out of your car.

transition mud towel fits snug over the top of your car seat and keeps both you and the car nice and clean, newly arrived in store is the new colours blue and grey.

The transition towels are super soft and good quaility, we love the Orange Mud transition towel so much we slapped our BMRC logo on it. Would you like to feel like part of our running crew with your very own Blue Mountains Running Company towel?

We road tested the Orange Mud transition towel in store, Shane our model has one around his waist, it clicks firmly into place. Belinda said, "It is great towel if you need to change, you can wrap it around yourself, without the dreaded falling down of the towel".

The two new colours look sensational, Tim Peatman a local mountain runner said via our facebook, "He got one last year for his birthday, "It gets used almost every day and has been one of the best birthday presents I've ever gotton".

So here at BMRC we set the bar high for pleasing our fellow runner, why not treat yourself or your loving runner a transition Orange mud towel.

Matt Fairbairn said, " Best towels ever. Always take it when i hit the trails".

Check out the promo video it is Hilarious.
