22—36—45 km Alpine Runs

Join us and experience some of the most spectacular alpine trail running within close proximity of Melbourne.

The Mount Buller Skyrun offers three unique runs:

  1. 22 km introductory trail run from Mount Buller to Mount Stirling and back.
  2. 36 km mid distance course from Mount Buller to Mount Stirling and then a quad busting descent to the Delatite River before a gut wrenching 1200 m climb to the summit of Mount Buller.
  3. 45 km ultra course which takes in Mount Stirling, Craigs Hut, great views over the Crosscut Saw and the Bluff, a scenic jog along the banks of the Delatite River and a final crushing climb to the summit of Mount Buller itself before an exhilarating 2 km descent to the finish line.

All up an exhilarating day trip from Melbourne.
