SINCE winning the Nail Can Hill run last year, Nadine Barnes has made running up steep hills something of a hobby.
Set to compete at the Australian Mountain Running Championships in Brisbane at the end of May, Barnes said this year’s Nail Can would serve as a vital training run.
“I started training for the Mountain Running Championships about twelve months ago, and that’s going to be my main focus for the next couple of months,” he said.
“I definitely want to run a faster time than I did last year, but I’m not necessarily concerned with winning the actual race.
“I got involved with mountain running because I enjoy it, and I do it for myself and my own enjoyment.
“Fortunately for me I happen to be good at it.”
Barnes ran at the Mount Buller Running Festival last weekend, taking part in an entirely uphill nine-kilometre race where each competitor climbs 1.3kilometres vertically.
Despite travelling further and further to compete, Barnes said she was a novice who didn’t have a specifically tailored training program.
“I just run up a hill, more or less,” Barnes said.
“I have a personal trainer that I see once a week, but other than that I don’t have any kind of set program or anything like that.
“I just run for the thrill of it, it’s something that makes me happy.”
