Icebug/CEP Hillary Inspirer Jared gets this party started!!

Getting started… So I got signed off to run! Well, “Jog… lightly” were the Surgeon's exact words. Lucky that’s what I’m currently capable of, so we seem to be on the same page. I won’t be doing any strengthening exercises on the shoulder until Christmas, so I’ll continue to be uncomfortable at least till then. [...]

Introducing Icebug/CEP Hillary Inspirer Rebekah

Kia Ora, I'm Rebekah, I live in Christchurch with my husband Steve and two kids Erina and Joseph.  First and foremost I would like to describe my running style, or rather, how it was described by a fellow Tarawera Ultra (100km) competitor: "caravan".  As this poor fellow finally pulled up next to me after huffing [...]

Gidday guys! My name is Tom Sidey and I was lucky enough to be selected as a Hillary Inspirer for 2017! I’m a 25 year old member of the Royal New Zealand Air Force – kind of like Sir Ed himself was all those years ago – and have served for almost 8 years. Originally [...]

Introducing Icebug/CEP Hillary Inspirer Jared

Hey Folks, I don’t know how I suckered my way into this gig. Apparently I’ve fooled the team at Lactic Turkey, so over the next few months I’ll keep up the charade as some sort of inspirer and I do hope you get something out of following my journey to the finish line. I’m Jared, [...]

Icebug/CEP Hillary Inspirer Zara returned to The Hillary this year to beat the trails, that’s not exactly how it turned out ….

Mama always said “you’ve got to have a bad race to have a good one.” So if that’s the case I’m due for an absolute blinder. I feel like the big man upstairs was throwing a bunch of hard balls at me during my build up for the Hillary, as there a multitude of reasons [...]

Icebug/CEP Hillary Inspirer Zara tells us how her race plan usually pans out

In anticipation of competing in the Foundation Clinic Mauao Half Marathon this weekend, I’ve been contemplating the ideal race plan. I’m taking this week’s event as a good opportunity to check my fitness levels and test out some different gear and nutrition strategies. We all have our own necessities and rituals when preparing for a [...]

Icebug/CEP Hillary Inspirer Rob gives us his hard-learned tips on how to get through the tough bits of a race

In my head… I had just shuffled back into the driveway after my first ever continuous road run in excess of 30km and I was feeling pretty shattered, but rather pleased with myself. It was a few weeks out from my first marathon and the 30km mark had been a significant milestone on the training [...]
