Mt Buller’s Mountain High Fun Run is a great event for everybody! Head out with family and friends and enjoy a leisurely lap around the Village, or push yourself to the limit on one of our more difficult courses. Proceeds from the Mountain High Fun Run go to the Mansfield District Hospital.
WHEN / WHERE
SATURDAY 04 April 2015
All runs start in the Mt Buller Village Square
We have created three courses that range from leisurely to downright challenging.
This is a combination of sealed and unsealed road that is flat and at a beginner runner’s level. Suitable for parents with prams and those wanting to get out into the fresh alpine air.
Prizes: First boy, first girl (14 and under)
5.7KM SUMMIT SIZZLER
Here is an undulating run on a gravel track that tours through the natural alpine environment, around the base of the Mt Buller summit and back into the village. A good leg stretcher and a more challenging on off-road and rocky terrain. With the thigh burning loop to the Summit Fire Hut on the Summit Sizzler you are set to really test yourself!
Prizes: First male, first female.
8.9KM BULLER BREAKER
Combining both circuits, those runners out to challenge themselves will head off on the 3.2km Village Views, join up with the 5.7km Summit Sizzler and tour the awesome mixture of trails that Mt Buller has to offer. The greatest challenge comes when you hit the Summit Fire Hut loop. A true test of your attitude to altitude!
Prizes: First male, first female.
