21 km Course

Entries close Wednesday 19th November, 2014

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 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.”
Entries can still be made at the official run briefing at Rundells Alpine Lodge on Saturday night at 8pm and on race day from 8am until 9am. No futher entries will be accepted after 9am. Cash only for late entries, please note there are limited banking facilities available in Dinner Plain.

WEATHER CONDITIONS / EXPERIENCE

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.

MEDICAL EVACUATION
