16km - Thunderbolt Challenge $80 p/p
Runners will start at Salisbury Lodges, head out on the Blue Gum loop trail and then join the southern end of Rocky Crossing walk. Runners will head up the steep hill to reach the Williams Top picnic area. Once you reach the top, runners turn around and head back the same way.

33km - Corker Challenge $100 p/p
Runners will start at Salisbury Lodges, head out on the Blue Gum loop trail and then join the southern end of Rocky Crossing walk. Runners will head up the steep hill to reach Williams Top picnic area. Runners will continue on the main access road until they reach Lagoon Pinch picnic area. At Lagoon Pinch picnic area runners are required to undergo a mandatory check-in with race officials, before heading up the Corker. The turn around point is at the top on the Corker. Runners must undergo another mandatory check-in on the way back down. The reason for this is to ensure the health and safety of each runner before heading up the Corker and on their way back.
Runners will have to reach Lagoon Pinch picnic area by 10am to be able to proceed up the Corker.
