Warburton Trail Festival
So, here it is, yes a vertical kilometre (lower case V & K... we're not looking for any official Skyrun accreditation here, what we are saying is that you rise a vertical kilometre when you run this one. In only 8km. It's just maths). The total distance up to the top of Donna is 11km, but you ping the 1000m vertical mark at 8km. Then you punch through some stunning tall eucalyptus and fern forest on Mt Victoria, before popping out at the summit of Mt Donna Buang (1250m ASL). And then? Well... the run's not over. No, no, no, dear runner. Yep, you HAVE to run back down again (insert evil villain laughter here). Yes. It's gonna hurt your quads. #sorrynotsorry. Did we mention as part of this run you will take on one of the Southern Hemisphere's steepest residential streets.
