|Sat-Sun||24-25 Nov||ALPINE CHALLENGE
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. Imagine completing 4 marathons in 42 hours; that is the challenge you could face if you decide to enter the Alpine Challenge 100mile event. The 12th Falls Creek Alpine Challenge Ultra Marathon, covers four distances 160/100/60/36km. With over 7,600 meters of climb and descent, this event is the classic 100 mile alpine trail run in Australia; testing runners to the limit. It also offers one of the country�s most scenic and challenging 100 km runs covering over 4,000m of ascent and descent. Our "mid easy" run option,60km covers 2,000m of ascent and descent and our "easy" run is a mere 36km including 1,300m of ascent - a great intro to long distance alpine running. All the four distances offer participants the opportunity to compete as: a solo runner, a team completing the entire course together or a relay team with runners completing individual legs either on their own or with other team members � this is the real fun event! Set in the spectacular Alpine National Park in North Eastern Victoria the event takes in some of the best, hardest and most exposed high country in Australia including Mt Feathertop, Mt Hotham, Mt McKay, Spion Kopje, Mt Nelse and Victoria�s highest mountain, Mt Bogong. contact: Paul Ashton. email: email@example.com.
