Mon 5 Nov WILSONS PROM 100 (VIC)
Run the Prom. Wilsons Promontory National Park offers, Australia's most spectacular coastal ultra. Experience the sound of waves crashing on rocks, feel the sand under your feet, the wind in your hair and the water up to your waist as you tackle this wilderness paradise. The Prom 100 offers runners 44, 60 and 100 km run loops only 3.5 hours from Melbourne. Experience the 13th running of one of Australia's best coastal trail runs at Victoria's spectacular Wilsons Promontory National Park. The run is all on single track, rock, fire trails and beaches offering spectacular coastal views with approximately 10 km on sealed road. Depending on tide movements it may be necessary to wade across the creeks at both Sealers Cove and Oberon Beach. The Prom 100 is a self supported run, it is not a race. Runners are fully responsible for their own safety and assume full liability for their participation. Participants should offer assistance to other runners in distress. Due to Parks Victoria regulations, no support personnel or equipment is available other than at Tidal River. This is an arduous course with constant climbs that take a cumulative toll. The run has been scheduled for Saturday 05 May with the pre race briefing taking place just prior to the start. Weather conditions could be cold, wet and windy. Hypothermia is a serious risk and all runners should be prepared. The Prom 100 run should only be attempted by experienced trail runners with good navigation experience. The run will start and finish in the dark. As a minimum, runners attempting the 100 km course must have successfully completed at least one 50 km organised trail run in the previous 6 months. contact: Paul Ashton. email: runningwild56@bigpond.com. Visit the website for more details. Click here for an entryform.
