Razorback Run

Razorback—March 2019

Hi Paul, thanks again for letting me continue, and for the kind words in the race report.
The true hero of the day certainly was at the back of the field - Julie Savage. The most patient and encouraging sweep ever. I doubt I would have made it to the end without her there.
Thoroughly enjoyed the event, and look forward to doing another of your events.

Dave

22—40—64 Alpine Runs

This classic Alpine run offers four challenging distances in some of the most spectacular country in Victoria’s Alpine National Park.

The Run

The 64 km Razorback Ridge run takes in the entire length of the Razorback as well as heading across to the Bogong High Plains to take some great ascents and descents as well as some of the most stunning ridge running in the Australian Alps.

The 40 km Razorback Circuit gives you a great climb to the summit of Mt Feathertop, the second highest peak in Victoria, a terrific ridge run and a quad busting descent.

The 22 km short course Razorback Ridge offers  a delightful day out to the Summit of Mt Feathertop and back along the Razorback.
