Triple Top Mountain Run

The Kentish Lions Triple Top Mountain Run is scheduled for 12th November 2017.  Entries have sold out - sorry if you missed out. For those who have registered - read on.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Last year the tracks were flooded after heavy rains lashed the coast.  It was cold and rainy, the ground was slippery as ...., and the ascent of VanDyke was like climbing up a waterfall.  ‚ÄčEven the rocks were slippery.  But the event still went on regardless.

This is a gruelling event conducted in unknown weather conditions, so we suggest warm  waterproof clothing.  Also gloves, water, food and mobile phone should be part of your kit.  It can take walkers up to 7 hours to complete the course and it is challenging and exhausting.

For the moment - work on your fitness and game plan.  It is more a run than a race, but there is always the competitive spirit.

The Lions Club relies on many volunteer groups to put on this event, especially SES and Tas Ambulance.  It takes place on land managed by Parks & Wildlife so we must adhere to their conditions.  (See below)  We also rely on our sponsors so please support them and please thank a volunteer today.

Thanks to all concerned for helping to make our 25th Triple Top last year such a successful event.  The tough conditions made it the most challenging triple top that we have held, but the literally hundreds of participants and volunteers who went way and above the call of duty to defy the elements are to be congratulated.

We are proud of you all.

The race winner was Reuben Case of Westbury, and womens winner Nerida Warburg from Hobart - both now part of the Triple Top's annals of history.

Very well done.

Thanks from the Lions Club of Kentish and

Frank and Elizabeth Atkins.
