Event information: Great Volcanic Mountain Challenge

Export to calendar Back

The Greater Volcanic Challenges are 'fun run' style events where you can run or walk up fire trails and bush tracks with some wonderful views to Mt Towac , Young Man Canobolas and Mt Canobolas. The Greater Challenge starts at Pinnacle Picnic grounds and finishes at the top of Mt Canobolas (Overall climb is 520m distance 11km) and a bus takes you back to the start area. The newly introduced Mini Challenge starts and finishes at the Picnic grounds (distance 4.5km).

This is our 13th year and the entry numbers are still climbing. Last year we had nearly 500 starters, a huge increase in numbers, across all ages ranging from 8 to 80! The top runners can do it
in under an hour but most contestants finish the long race in the 1.5 hrs to 2.5 hrs range. The new shorter race is 4.5kms and the winner will set the race record
Greater Volcanic is rightly called a 'Challenge' and requires a serious effort to complete. Getting
to the Finish line rewards contestants with a real sense of satisfaction.
