The second annual Mt. Buller Adventure Race is just around the corner. The single day adventure race sees competitors navigate around the snowfields on skis, snowboard, snowshoes, skins, alpine touring or split board equipment.
Chief Executive Officer of Mt Buller Mt Stirling Resort Management, John Huber, said of the event “The Mt Buller Winter Adventure Race is a unique event on our calendar, offering a fun and diverse experience for competitors and spectators alike. Now in its second year, the Winter Adventure Race sees some tough competition but plenty of fun as well, so we encourage guests to take part and enjoy a great day out.
“There are plenty of prizes to be won, and the day wraps up with a presentation in the Cinema followed by a screening of the Backcountry Film Festival. It’s a day full of adventure here on top of the world!”
The race starts and finishes from the Mt Buller Village Square, and can be done on your own or in pairs. There are several categories for people to enter including a new race category for 2015, the Open Male and Female Individual category, plus the Inter-Lodge Trophy Challenge for members of Mt Buller lodges.
The race is on Saturday 25th of July from 9.30am, with a mandatory pre-race briefing. Ticket prices start at $15 for individuals, and $25 for a team of two and participants.
