Imagine completing 4 marathons in 42 hours; that is the challenge you could face if you decide to enter the Alpine Challenge 100 mile event. The 12th Falls Creek Alpine Challenge Ultra Marathon, covers four distances 100 mile (160 km), the 100 km, the 60 km, 42 km, 25 km, 16 km and 10 km.
With over 7,600 metres of climb and 7,600 metres of 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 4,000 m of ascent and descent in 26 hours. Our “mid easy” run option—60 km covers 2,000 m of ascent and descent and our “easy” run is a mere 42 km including 900 m of ascent, a great intro to long distance alpine running. For those wanting to savour the atmosphere and experience running in the high country, we now offer 10/16/25 km courses which can be run either solo or as a team
The distances offer participants the opportunity to compete as:
a solo runner—all
a team completing the entire course together —all
a relay team with runners completing individual legs either on their own or with other team members—this is the real fun event!—60/100/160 km only
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.
