The Hill Climb Challenge


  • Springer Hill, Mt Pleasant Heights, Dayboro


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 Jerry Springer has more than enough!

This stiffest of challenges is undertaken through natural bush with a  2.5 km climb 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!
