About the event

There’s a smorgasbord of events on offer ranging from the 100km solo run to the 50km, marathon, half marathon and 10km runs.

Perhaps you can choose the 100km or 50km bicycle chase where entrants are given arrest warrants to chase down the runners on course.

And those a bit special can also “choose your own adventure” and tackle the course in some less than conventional format!

The "chase" will test the physical and mental prowess of the 100km and 50km journeymen (and women) by foot. Aiming to finish near 12pm they start with individual time goals, but share the common goal of avoiding those that pursue from behind. When the runners have gone, the pursuit really begins with 100km and 50km bicycle chase entrants set to track down, and apprehend their runner equivalents. The chase is on!

And at 9am there's a 10km fun run with 50% of the course on unsealed urban tracks and trails through native bushland along the Ovens River.
