3.2km Village Views
This is a combination of sealed and unsealed road that is flat and at a beginner runner's level. Suitable for parents with prams and those wanting to get out into the fresh alpine air. Prizes: First boy, first girl (14 and under).
5.7km Summit Sizzler
Here is an undulating run on a gravel track that tours through the natural alpine environment, around the base of the Mt Buller summit and back into the village. A good leg stretcher and a more challenging on off-road and rocky terrain. With the thigh burning loop to the Summit Fire Hut on the Summit Sizzler you are set to really test yourself! Prizes: First male, first female.
8.9km Buller Breaker
Combining both circuits, those runners out to challenge themselves will head off on the 3.2km Village Views, join up with the 5.7km Summit Sizzler and tour the awesome mixture of trails that Mt Buller has to offer. The greatest challenge comes when you hit the Summit Fire Hut loop. A true test of your attitude to altitude! Prizes: First male, first female.
14.5km Mountain Madness
New for 2016, this course is designed to push your comfort envelope. Combining three of our favourite trails, Family Trail, Summit Nature Loop and the Gangs Gangs Loop this course is for experienced mountain runners.
