Coaches on Couches Ep. 38 – Brian Williams and Sean Hilsdon – Amazing Ultra Marathon Race Directors

We’re talking to Brian Williams and Sean Hilsdon, race directors of the Walking Tall 50k/25k trail race, about their 6th born (we don’t really know how many kids Sean has).

These two guys have put massive time and energy into creating what we believe to be the premier ultra marathon in West TN. This is what you get when you bring together a financial planner and an eagle scout civil engineer. A grand ole trail adventure.

We’ll talk to them about how their dream became a reality and how they ended up getting 300+ runners in a 1st year ultra event. By the way, that’s unheard of. We also go into what’s new for the 2019 race, and what will most certainly stay the same. Hint: the course.

We cap it off with our major tips for preparing yourself for this event, or any long trail event with lots of elevation for that matter.

So if you are a race director, trail junkie, or someone who likes to get lost in the woods for hours, you won’t want to miss this episode.
