Runners of all levels catered for at Mt Buller
MT BULLER delivered an exciting running calendar this past summer season with something special for every level of competitor.
The diverse terrain combined with an altitude of up to 1805m offers a world of possibilities for running events.
Following on from the success of the inaugural, epic 100km Oscars Hut 2 Hut in February, Mt Buller’s summer of running continued with the Mt Buller Skyrun on April 2, and the Mountain High Fun Run on April 15.
Runners choose from 22km, 36km and 45km on courses that take in the superb mountainous scenery of the Bluff, Cross Cut Saw, Mt Buller, Mt Stirling and the Delatite Valley.
The Mountain High Fun Run features four course options; for families and beginners the leisurely 3km Village Views takes a casual lap around the Mt Buller Village, while the 6km Summit Sizzler and 9km Buller Breaker puts more serious runners through their paces.
The popular 15km Mountain Madness encompasses some of the best scenery and most demanding tracks that Mt Buller has to offer, including the gruelling 200 metre vertical climb to the summit fire hut.
Supporting the Mansfield District Hospital, this annual event attracted more than 400 runners.
