Greater Bank Volcanic Challenge & Family Trail Fun Run

March 31, 2019

Welcome to the information page for The 2019 Greater Bank Volcanic Challenge & Family Trail Fun Run!

The event will be hosted on Sunday, 31st March, in Orange (3hr drive west of Sydney).

This is a fun run event where you can run or walk to the top of Mount Canobolas, near Orange. For the first time this year there is a 5k Family Trail Run course as well as the scenic 11k route. Bring along your friends and families to join in!

11km Greater Bank Volcanic Challenge
The 11k course starts at Towac Pinnacle Picnic Grounds (off Pinnacle Rd) and continues to Mt Towac (that’s a steep section but the views make it worth the effort). Participants then head to Young Man Canobolas before finishing uphill at Mt Canobolas. The overall elevation gain is 520m. The 11k event will also include the 2019 NSW Mountain Running Championships.

5km Greater Bank Family Trail Run
The 5k Family Trail Run will start at 9:30am, at the Towac Pinnacle Picnic Grounds (same starting point as the 11k route). The course follows a different route which plateaus, and has excellent views along the way! Participants then turn around to retun to the start point to finish the run.

We look forward to seeing you in Orange, and we hope you enjoy this wonderful event!
