2015 UltrAspire Hillary Aspirer Kat tells us how she smashed the course and her goals on Saturday

Writing these blogs in the lead up to The Hillary event definitely had a really positive influence on my performance this year. The things I was writing about, which hopefully helped some of you in training or preparing for the race, ultimately also helped me because it meant that I was really thinking about how [...]

2015 Another happy UltrAspire Hillary Aspirer Caleb reviews some of his new UltrAspire gear

Caleb vs His Thirst Firstly, wow...what an amazing country we live in: being able to run on breathtaking trails like I was lucky enough to run on this evening.
