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.

Running community comes together

Thursday, 14 December 2017 8:14:00 AM Australia/Sydney

Liam absolutely loves it!
A couple of months ago we were really fortunate to meet Phil and Kylie Mackey and their beautiful children as customers of our 2773 Glenbrook and also of Blue Mountains Running Co.

Their son Liam has some rather severe disabilities and over the course of several conversations with Kylie about how tough life can be with children with special needs (and Liam’s are very special needs) she said to me, and I’ll never forget this – ‘I try to look at the positives, I was 30 kilos heavier when Liam was born and we both now run and we are so much more positive'.
