The Hill Climb Challenge

Where?

  • Wild Horse Mountain, Beerburrum

  • Springer Hill, Mt Pleasant Heights, Dayboro

  • The Big Dipper, Glasshouse Mountains, Woodford

Why?

Why not?!  It's all about the 'vert’, right?  Well, not always (ask anyone who ran the BVRT100 last year!).  The most often asked question about a course at a new or existing event is, ‘What’s the ascent?’ or ‘How much vert is there?’ - just as often asked with trepidation as opposed to anticipation. Well, the HCC has plenty but on three very different routes. 

Round 1 - Hilloween at the The Jerry Springer, Dayboro

Saturday, November 9th-10th

 

The stiffest climb of the three rounds is undertaken through natural bush with a  2.5 km ascent and return) and subsequently 200 metres of ascent/descent (8,000 metres/100 km!).

Full refund for hitting 50 miles in the 12 hour or 50km in the 6 hour. Earlier in 2019, Tony Williams of Blue Mountains Fitness managed 23 laps in 10 hours to cover 57.5 km and 4,600 metres of climbing to set the bar high for the next event and the next visit to Dayboro in!

On to Round 2.

The Jerry Springer
 

Round 2 - The Big Dipper, Woodford

Saturday, February 15th-16th

Where: Millwood Road, off Glasshouse-Woodford Rd, Beerburrum (HERE)

 Each lap has two climbs and two descents into the same valley (one each on the way out and one each on the way back) with all participants visible from all parts of the course - so everyone can share the struggle and keep it cozy!  With each lap consisting of a convenient 1 km out and back and 68 metres of ascent/descent (so an 'even' 6,800 metres per 100 km) it's not as severe as Round 1 but the start/finish is visible every step of the way!

Round 3 - Wild Horse Mountain, Beerburrum

 

Saturday, March 21st-22nd 

Wild Horse Mountain is the venue for the final round of the HCC and is immediately adjacent to the Bruce Highway.  It's the only round of the three where you may come across members of the public taking in the view so you'll have a keen audience!  Not the toughest of the three rounds, but also not to be underestimated with approximately 95 metres of ascent and descent and a round trip of 1.4 km, it will pack a punch at 6,300 metres 100 km if you like stats.
