Event description

Description

The Venue

Melrose is the oldest town in the Flinders Ranges. Settled in the 1840s, it sits at the foot of Mount Remarkable, named by Edward John Eyre because of the “lofty way in which it towered above the surrounding hills”.

Close to Adelaide (it can be a day trip), Mount Remarkable National Park is an ideal place to take the family.

There’s lots of diverse wildlife and campgrounds with great facilities. The park is a popular destination for bushwalking, with trails for all ages and abilities.

There are some incredible views to be had – the 960m high Mount Remarkable Summit presides over the Willochra Plain and looks over the Spencer Gulf. On a clear day you will be able to see other peaks over 150km away!

The Event

The summit of Mt Remarkable is your destination for this event. Run (or walk) from the Melrose caravan park campgrounds along the newly built trail to the summit of Mt Remarkable. Pace yourself - it's 7.7KM with over 560M of vertical ascent, with a 7km descent along a dedicated return trail.

Once you get to the summit the race is complete and you have a scenic and easy return walk along a dedicated down-trail.

Generous cutoff times ensures that everyone has a chance to complete the summit experience making this an iconic and inclusive event that provides everyone from keen trail runners to family groups a fun day out!

All finishers will receive a medal and entrants will be fully supported by multiple aid stations with hydration and running snacks.
