The Brooks Trail Run Festival at Mt Baw Baw will feature three days of trail running events, kicking off with what could be one of Australia's toughest marathons: a 42.2km course from the historical township of Walhalla.
Why the toughest? One look at the course profile will make legs and lungs perspire in fear, the most obvious feature being an uphill haul for the majority of the distance. Runners looking for a slightly easier but no less beautiful entrée to such an intimidating challenge can take on the half marathon, which tracks along the second half of the same course, beginning near the halfway mark at Mt Erica.
The challenge continues on Day Two of the festival with two 13km events run around the trails starting and finishing at Mt Baw Baw's mountaintop village. The first outing will be a morning foray while the second will take place at night (head torch must be worn).
On the Sunday there will also be a kids fun run (roughly 3km) around the beautiful Summit Trail. On Sunday morning there will be a morning session of 'free mountain running', a new offering on the local trail run scene that focuses on super-short 1.5km courses, the catch being that the terrain is ridiculously steep!
So with up to seven runs on offer there is something for the whole family; oh and if you are particularly crazy you can vie for the "King of the Mountain" or "Queen of the Mountain" title and compete in all the runs!
