The 4 Peaks Bright Alpine Climb run up Mystic Hill on Tuesday, 5 November 2019 is on the final day in a series of four trail runs.
The Bright Alpine Climb, also known as the Four Peaks Climb, started in 1979 to get walkers into the hills to enjoy the superb scenery the area around Bright has to offer. Runners have since joined the walkers and have added excitement to the event. To the current day – runners and walkers all mix well throughout the four day event.
Starting in Wandilligong, participants leave the Alpine Park via Grenville's Rd, turning right and beginning a winding climb into the pine plantations and toward the approach of the summit of Mystic Hill from the East.
Upon reaching the summit and traversing the launch pad, participants head south along Water Reserve Track which climbs another 120m over the next 2km. Participants then turn left in a very steep descent back down to the pine plantation where the course levels out and they wind their way back to the finish.
