The Alpine Challenge is without doubt the toughest, most challenging, most spectacular and rewarding all mountain trail run in Australia—if not the southern hemisphere over seven distances.

The 160 km course takes in 6 major climbs with 7,600 m of ascent and descent including Mt Feathertop, Mt Hotham, Mt McKay, Spion Kopje, Mt Nelse and Victoria’s highest mountain, Mt Bogong plus five river crossings. 

The 100 km involves over 4,000 m of ascent and descent and the 60 km course over 2,000 m of ascent and descent, whilst for those undertaking the 42 km run you will have over 900 m of ascent.

The three short distances - 10/16/25 km - offer an opportunity to experience great trail running taking in some historic huts and great views.

Entries for the 2021 Alpine Challenge are now open. Early Bird entries close 02 February 2021.

Head to the Running Wild website to register or to find out all the latest information.


*Please note: Due to current/future COVID-19 restrictions on numbers organisers can not guarantee entry at this stage. If only limited numbers are permitted, entry will be confirmed based on date of entry with early entries getting priority.
