The Rooftop Run

Australia's famous rooftop run, 64km Bogong to Hotham, is arguably one of the toughest trail runs in the country. Bogong to Hotham is a classic race with a rich history embedded in Australian trail running folklore. Starting at Mountain Creek Campground, runners climb the massive Mt Bogong, descend T-Spur to Big River before the next big climb up Duane's Spur to reach the Bogong High Plains. Passing through the main aid station at Langford Gap, runners continue across the high plains before dropping to the Cobungra River and climbing Swindler's Spur on the way to the finish at Mt Hotham summit.

The most challenging event on the Trails Plus calendar and most certainly the toughest. An event that has been conducted for 30 years, held on a course that will challenge you to dig deeper then you may have ever had to go. Throw in the ever changing weather possibilities it is an event for the experienced endurance athlete.
