Ryan Sandes, The World's Craziest Trail Runner

Friday, 1 February 2019 1:01:56 PM Australia/Sydney

Ryan Sandes, The World's Craziest Trail Runner visit our Blue Mountains Running Company, Social Run Group

Blue Mountains Running Company Social Run Group

This Week we were privledged to have one of the Worlds top athletes come and run with our Social Run Group and provide us with a quick Q & A talk on completion of his run.

Our beautiful Blue Mountains surely did not disappoint as you can see from the drip of sweat on his forehead. It is hot up here in Glenbrook, the foot of the mountains and we train hard on those trails.

Ryan Sandes Trail Running Athlete

Ryan talked about trail running all around the world, including his accomplishments, ok we drilled him about his successes and what he loved most about trail running and the journey it has taken him on.

He talked about his passion for the charities he is involved with in South Africa and what he would like to do in his future in running.

Justifying the Worlds Crazies Runner title, some of the races he has entered, won and conquered to give him such a prestigious title and to us, trail running royalty.

Ryan Sandes visits Blue Mountains Running Company

Just a small list of his huge accomplishments.

  • Run across the Amazon Jungle
  • Run across the Himalayas
  • Winner of UTA Australia
  • 100 milers
  • Winner Western States
  • Leadville
  • Four deserts races
  • 2013 Only person to have won an ultra-trail race on every continent

Ryan said Ultra Trail Australia is one of his favourite races, we love that, particularly since he has raced all over the world and we are lucky enough to have this race in our backyard.

Trail running tips from a Winner of Ultra Trail Australia is to familiarize yourself with the course, don’t over train, and keep up the long runs.

  • Look after your recovery.
  • Train race specific parts of the course, the stairs at the end.
  • Nail down your nutrition, don’t leave it until race day.

A memorable one for me was his journey in one of the Himalayas, he talks about the locals taking a group of them in for the night to avoid frost bite.

We love that Ryan signed our Trail Running Wall within Blue Mountains Running Company and we have been lucky enough to have some of the world’s finest Ultra Running Athletes sign this wall also.

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.

 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 Aussie Grit brand to be the best purpose designed running waterproof rain jacket. 

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

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
