UP­HILL BAT­TLE

Alpine Observer - - Front Page -

The lead pack of run­ners start their as­cent of Mount Feather­top (1922m) from Har­ri­etville on Sun­day morn­ing, as part of the 4 Peaks alpine run­ning chal­lenge. Ath­letes ran up four moun­tains in four days, vary­ing from 10.6km to 15km, start­ing with Mt Buf­falo on Satur­day, Mt Feather­top on Sun­day, Mt Hotham on Mon­day and Mys­tic Hill on Tues­day. Each climb is timed and on the fi­nal day re­sults are added to­gether for an over­all time. The event started in 1979 to get walk­ers into the hills around Bright, and has now at­tracted a strong fol­low­ing of trail run­ners.
