HIT THE HILLS

By Julian Spence: 4 time winner of Great Ocean Road Marathon and Co-owner of The Running Company Ballarat 

Only 3 weeks to go until Ballarat Foundation Run for a Cause2018!

Work up the hills and enjoy the view from the top!

Now into week 6 of our 8 week training program, Julian this week explains the benefits of using hills for your leg strength and aerobic conditioning.

“One of the secrets behind the incredibly high level of runners in Ballarat is the landscape we’re blessed with. All the hills through the town make for great training. Even our main street is one big long hill! Hills can strengthen your legs, increase your running economy and build aerobic conditioning. Not to mention the views you get at the top!”

– Julian Spence, 4 time winner of Great Ocean Road Marathon and Run for a Cause Ambassador.
