Start Time: The Bright Alpine Climb is a staggered start. This is due to both the nature of the trails being run and also the diversity of speed that participants travel.
Start Period 1: 7am – Walkers
Start Period 2: 8am – Runners
Participants are required to check in at the start line and will have their number recorded before they start. This will assist us with safety services. All walkers will leave together at 7am. All runners will leave together at 8am
The Course: Starting in Wandilligong, participants leave the Alpine Park via Grenville’s Rd, turning right and beginning a winding climb into the pine plantations and toward the approach of the summit of Mystic Hill from the East. upon reaching the summit and traversing the launch pad – participants head south along Water Reserve Track which climbs another 120m over the next 2km. Participants then turn left in a very steep descent back down to the pine plantation where the course levels out and they wind their way back to the finish.
Expected Performance for Walkers: Walkers need to aim to be finished by Midday. This gives slow walkers 5 hours. A minimum pace of approx 25 – 30 minutes per kilometre.
Aid along the way: There is one aid station only for the Mystic Hill event.
Aid Station 1: Fruit & Water at the Mystic Hill launch pad.
FINISH In the same place you started for the Mystic Hill event.
