The Alpine Challenge is the toughest, most challenging and most spectacular all mountain trail run in Australia - if not the southern hemisphere. Taking place over four distances. The 100 mile (160 kilometre) course takes in six major climbs with 7,600 metre 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 kilometre involves over 4,000 metres of ascent and descent and the 60 kilometre course over 2,000 metres of ascent and descent, whilst for those undertaking the 36 kilometres run you will have over 1,300 metres of ascent. The three short distances—10/16/25 km—offer an opportunity to experience great trail running and some of the historic huts on single tracks with great views over Heathy Spur and Rocky Valley Dam.
