The Dinner Plain Mile High takes place in the alpine environment where weather can be severe and subject to sudden change. Whilst much of the DP/Hotham trail takes place on a gravel path amongst the snowgums (much of the course runs parallel to The Great Alpine Road) runners need to be prepared for all kinds of weather including sun, dense fog, high winds, rain, sleet and snow.
With the nature of the terrain and the distance from the closest hospital (45km from Omeo Hospital) we recommend all participants should join Ambulance Victoria. Medical evacuations are at participants cost. www.ambulance-vic.com.au. Phone 03 9379 9155.
There are a wealth of accommodation options in Dinner Plain from budget to luxury, hotel rooms or chalets for 1 to 20 people. Take a look at www.visitdinnerplain.com for special packages for the Dinner Plain Mile High weekend.
A pre run briefing will be conducted at Rundells Alpine Lodge on Saturday 30th November at 8pm. This is a briefing for participants so they understand the conditions they may encounter, receive a full trail description and requirements of doing the course. They can also pick up registration bags.
The Hotham to Dinner Plain trail is a recreational trail between the two villages for walking and riding, runners are asked to show consideration to track walkers and other race participants.
