Mt Buller to host epic Winter Adventure Race
MT BULLER will again host the exhilarating Winter Adventure Race event on Saturday, September 16.
The Mt Buller Adventure Race is an exciting single day event that sees competitors navigate to nine different checkpoints across the Mt Buller snow fields.
Not only do contestants need to plan the best route for the fastest time, the course will see them battling up snowy mountain trails, traversing rugged stretches of alpine terrain, and descending snow-covered tracks to reach the finish line.
The course can be completed on skis, snowboard, snowshoes, skins, alpine touring or split board equipment with several race categories for participants to enter, making it ideal for all alpine enthusiasts.
Group manager of marketing, sales and events for Mt Buller Mt Stirling Resort Management, Gillian Dobson, said: “This is not your average orienteering day out; this event combines navigational know-how with fitness, making it a great way to experience the Mt Buller ski fields with a little healthy competition.
“The Mt Buller Winter Adventure Race is a unique event on our calendar, offering a challenging and fun experience for competitors.
“Now in its fourth year, the Winter Adventure Race sees some tough competition with plenty of friendly rivalry so we encourage guests to take part and enjoy a great day out.”
Starting and finishing at the Mt Buller Village Square, the winners will be determined based on the quickest times.
A presentation ceremony will be held in the Village Square, with lots of great prizes to be won.
Registration and further information on this exciting event can be found on the website, visit the events calendar at mtbuller.com.au.
