|Fri-Sun||17-19 Feb||OSCARS100 HUT 2 HUT (VIC)
Oscars100 Hut 2 Hut is Australia's most spectacular trek / run challenge that takes teams of two on a stunning journey through Victoria's High Country. Beautiful she may be, the Hut 2 Hut course is, quite simply, a bit of a brute. Over 100km various GPS units will come up with different results, but our instruments recorded in the vicinity of 5300 metres of gain. Ten peaks will be bagged. Not big by world standards - indeed Buller itself is the highest at 1805m - but try knocking off ten of them in a row, with plenty of diving down to the valley floor before climbing back up and you will know you've worked hard contact: Andy Payne. email: email@example.com.
