Phil Bellingham – 1st Birkie to complete ‘The Crossing’

In late 2018 our own Phil Bellingham and his national team member mate Mark Pollock (Wangaratta SC) completed the Mt Bogong to Hotham Winter Crossing in a time of 8 hrs 30 min. Congratulations!

This ‘Crossing’ has been completed by seven others since the tragic death of Charlie Derrick in 1964. They are listed in Phil’s report. Click [HERE] to view. Also, included at this location are details about Charlie Derrick’s attempt and the 1985 crossing in which the record was set by Audun Enderstad – a USA Olympian who completed the crossing in 5 hrs 53 min.
