Mt Buller News - - ON AND OFF THE SNOW -

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.

ON THE RUN: Com­peti­tors in Mt Buller’s run­ning events also have the chance to take in some stun­ning views. PHO­TOS: An­drew Rail­ton - Mt Buller
