Mount Panorama Punish


COVID 19 Registration Information:

If numbers for the event are restricted by NSW State Laws, Bathurst Regional Council rules or by any other authority, the organisers of the Mount Panorama Punish will transfer all entries beyond those permitted to the following year’s event.  Entries are time and date stamped, so any entries received beyond the number permitted at the time of the event will NOT be issued a race bib for 2020, and instead have their entry fee transferred to 2021 Mount Panorama Punish.

We will continue to take entries in the hope that the restrictions will ease further. If that doesn’t happen, and we remain limited to 500 entries, those entries beyond the 500 limit will be rolled over to the 2021 Punish.

Mount Panorama Punish is ‘one hot lap’ of the iconic motor racing circuit… with a difference. It’s your legs that will provide the horsepower and your lungs that will burn. With 174m of elevation gain over the 6.2km track, Mount Panorama Punish is a running race with no peer. Re-established in its current format in 2017, the 2020 event is set to be huge!

Winner of the 2017 and 2019 Destination Event of the Year, the Mount Panorama Punish is your ‘MUST DO’ running event for 2020.

Supported by Bathurst Regional Council, the track will be under traffic management, giving you the ONLY opportunity to really test yourself around this track without the risk of vehicles.

Strict cut off times will be in operation:

  1. 3km – 30 minutes (near KOM and QOM at McPhillamy Park)
  2. Finish, 6.2km – 1 hour

KOM and QOM will be located close to McPhillamy Park, at about the 3km mark. You have 1 hour in total to complete the lap. This means you will have to maintain an average pace of 9.4 min/km. Sounds easy but the first 3km are uphill the whole way. Never fear;  if you don’t make it to the checkpoints in time, a bus will be on hand to get you back to the finish line.

The Mount Panorama Punish is run entirely by volunteers and all profits are donated to charities.  We’d love to have you help, either before or on race day!  Please complete this form if you’d like to give us a hand!  Thank you so much 🙂

We love our sponsors and supporters!
