Get ready for some epic trail near Cudlee Creek, through beautiful bushland and over decent hills. As you’re hauling your way up the “Gongshow” – so named by previous race director Claire Simms – be secure in the knowledge that you are on a character building, proper climb!

Leave only your footprints on the traditional lands of the Kaurna and Peramangk peoples, and don’t forget to take in the amazing views at the top of Mt Misery.

The tracks are mainly fire trail, with some single track as well.

There is no certainty about your finish time – this event will truely test and delight you – but we can guarantee the adventure.

Mount Misery is situated in the Cudlee Creek Forest Reserve in the Mount Lofty Ranges around 45 minutes drive from Adelaide.
