Dinner Plain MILE HIGH Trail Run

Dinner Plain MILE HIGH Trail Run

Dinner Plain is thrilled to kick off the first annual Dinner Plain Mile High trail run event on Sunday 1st December, 2013. The Dinner Plain Mile High, offers runners the opportunity to soak up the pristine alpine environment and challenge themselves to run at an altitude above 1600 metres (one mile) and join the Dinner Plain Mile High club.

The course starts in the picturesque alpine village of Dinner Plain which sits at 1569 metres above sea level and is located on The Great Alpine Road. The event then takes runners up and around the stunning vistas of Victoria’s Alpine National Park and Mount Hotham. The event offers a variety of distances catering for elite and recreational runners including 4km return to JB Plain, 7km return to Mother Johnson’s and a Half Marathon 21km return to Wire Plain.

“The alps offer a different environment for runners, not only is the air thinner at a mile high but the water is fresher and temperatures cooler”. said Gary Battershill, owner Peppers Rundells Alpine Lodge. “Runners will certainly have to work a bit harder to join the mile high club.”

Runners are invited to secure their spots at the starting line of the Dinner Plain Mile High from 15th October. Entry for Adults is $35 and Children $20 and includes a t-shirt of participation. Entries into the 21km half marathon, 7km and 4km will become available online HERE.

DP Riders Club wish to acknowledge the contributions of its sponsors and supporters including the Alpine Shire Council, Parks Victoria, Mount Hotham Resort Management Board, Mount Hotham Skiing Company and the local community, without their assistance this event would not be possible.
