The Cradle Mountain Chateau Kentish Triple Top Mountain Run is back in 2011 and once again promises to be a highlight of the many fantastic summer events in Tasmania.
Established by the Lions Club of Kentish, the fun run on Sunday November 13 is a great way to enjoy some of the island state’s glorious views whilst testing yourself in a tough physical challenge.
Both casual walkers and serious joggers are welcome to join the fun, which takes place over a 19.7 km course along some of the most picturesque walking tracks of the region.
Commencing at the Oliver’s Road end of Mount Claude, the route crosses the traversing peaks of Van Dyke and Roland and finishes at the Claude Road Hall.
A number of elite runners will be competing strongly for line honours, but for most participants the event is all about getting involved, doing some exercise and enjoying the atmosphere of the day.
Slow walkers may spend around six hours on the course, so there is certainly no pressure to do any more than stroll and take in the surrounding beauty.
Money raised goes directly back into the Kentish community, so entrants and spectators will be providing support to the locals and helping the future running of such wonderful events.
As well as Cradle Mountain Chateau, major supporters of the day include the Kentish Council and the Kentish State Emergency Service.
It is a magnificent opportunity for visitors from the mainland and around the world to become lost in the local culture.
If you plan on entering the challenge, why not make a hotel reservation and spend the next day or two resting in comfort?
