OSCARS 100 HUT 2 HUT CHALLENGE

14 FEB 2020

Oscars 100 Hut to Hut is Australia’s toughest and most spectacular trek / run challenge that takes teams of two on a stunning journey through Victoria’s High Country trails once used by mountain explorers, pioneers, cattlemen and brumby runners (countryside most famously portrayed in the seminal film, The Man From Snowy River).

A physical and mental challenge, it will require long days on the feet, the stamina to climb extended ascents, and the nerve to run along precipitous ridgelines in remote countryside. It will take runners on a journey between historic mountain huts giving tribute to the historic wilderness lifestyles they sprang from.

When: 14-16 February 2020

The 2020 Oscars 100 Hut 2 Hut and The Archie WILL GO AHEAD as planned with requisite alterations to some run logistics / distances etc.

This course will result in:

  • a slight INCREASE in distance (from 101km to 105km)
  • a DECREASE in the amount of ascent (and overall technicality / brutal-ness) from 5800m to 4433m
  • Overall a slightly easier course on paper, however the mental game of doing two laps will be every bit as challenging.

The basic set up will be:

  • All 100km participants will do two laps of The Archie course
  • Solo 100km participants will complete two laps in under the original cut off time and similar pacing required for CP cut offs.
  • Two day participants have two options (1) a short day and then a long day OR (2) a long day and then a short day. Both options have you staying at Pikes Flat, regardless of which combination.
  • Three day participants run a shorter day, followed by a longer day, and then another shorter day. Both nights camping at Pikes Flat.

There are no trail closures for this event, but be aware of runners on shared trails.
