Greater Volcanic appreciates the generous support of:

The Greater Volcanic Challenges are 'fun run' style events where you can run or walk up fire trails and bush tracks with some wonderful views to Mt Towac , Young Man Canobolas  and Mt Canobolas. The Greater Challenge starts at Pinnacle Picnic grounds and finishes at the top of  Mt Canobolas (Overall climb is 520m distance 11km) and a bus takes you back to the start area. The newly introduced 5km Family Trail Run starts and finishes at the Picnic grounds.

This is our 13th event and the entry numbers are still climbing.  Last event (2017) we had nearly 500 starters, a huge increase in numbers, across all ages ranging from 8 to 80!  The top runners can do it
in under an hour but most contestants finish the long race in the 1.5 hrs to 2.5 hrs range. The new shorter race is 5kms and the winner will set the race record

Greater Volcanic is rightly called a 'Challenge' and requires a serious effort to complete.  Getting to the Finish line rewards contestants with a real sense of satisfaction.

If you go to our web albums you can see hundreds of pics to get an idea of what we do.

These events are open to everyone - runners and walkers, young and old, individuals, families, teams. But it is a challenge, so be sure you are fit enough to complete this long course within 150-minutes and the shorter one in about 75-minutes.
