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.
New for 2021 is the introduction of multiple shorter distances to enable more people to experience the magic of the Victorian Alps and savour the atmosphere of this unique event. We have introduced a number of changes, adding in short course distances of 10/16/25 km, discontinuing the 36 km distance and replacing it with a new marathon distance taking in the best of the high plains whilst offering fantastic scenery on a challenging course.
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.
