The Alpine Challenge at Falls Creek in Victoria on Saturday, 23 November 2019 has 36km, 60km, 100km and 160km events, which can be run solo, in teams, or relay teams.
The Alpine Challenge is without doubt the toughest, most challenging, most spectacular and rewarding all mountain trail run in Australia - if not the southern hemisphere over four distances. The 100 mile (160 km) course takes in 6 major climbs with 7,600 m of ascent and descent including Mt Feathertop, Mt Hotham, Mt McKay, Spion Kopje, Mt Nelse and Victoria’s highest mountain, Mt Bogong plus five river crossings.
The 100 km involves over 4,000 m of ascent and descent and the 60 km course over 2,000 m of ascent and descent, whilst for those undertaking the 36 km run you will have over 1,300 m of ascent.
Note that the Australian Mountain Bike Championships will be held at Falls Creek on the same weekend as the Alpine Challenge. To avoid missing out on accommodation enter now and book your stay early.
