King of the Mount

Classic 14 km


South Australia’s Highest Trail Run

Sunday 19th August

Race starts at 12:00 PM

The run utilises a dedicated summit track and separate descent track.

Enjoy a climb

You will climb relentlessly from Melrose (390 M elevation) to the summit of Mount Remarkable (960 M elevation), before plunging you straight back down again.

The Event

Keep an eye out for the old plane wreck on the scree slopes on your way down. You’ll also look out over the Willochra flood plains on your way up, with occasional glimpses across the Spencer Gulf. On a clear day you will also be able to see the Northern Flinders Ranges in the distance

Kangaroos and native birds will be your companions along the way.

This is a cup-less event

There are 3 manned aid stations along the way that will provide you with food and drinks.  To minimise waste and protect the environment, we are making this a cupless event.  Please ensure that you carry your own hydration system (hydration pack, hand held bottle etc).
