The Great Volcanic Challenge is an iconic mountain trail run of medium length over three peaks and through beautiful forest at Mount Canobolas near Orange in the central west of NSW.

The race starts near Towac Pinnacle Picnic Ground on Pinnacle Road, Orange and takes in spectacular views from the volcanic range, passing through changing vegetation on little used forest roads and bush tracks. The course is 11 km.

The second half of the course takes in Mt Towac (1350m), some beautiful forest area then Young Man Canobolas (1330m) via bush tracks before ascending to the summit of Mt Canobolas, at 1397m, a climb of 520m and the finish point.

It is a challenging run/walk, hence the name but very satisfying. We hope you take up the challenge and join us on race day.
