An exciting new running event has been added to the regional calendar, with runners being given the opportunity to pit themselves against Mount Panorama in November.
The Mount Panorama Punish will give runners a chance to take on the iconic circuit in what is being described as “one hot lap”.
Event organisers Jennifer Arnold and Stephen Jackson have created the event with the support of Bathurst Regional Council.
“The Mount Panorama circuit is an iconic venue and it is something that runners want to challenge themselves on. This event, which will offer rolling traffic closures will allow runners to take on the Mount in a safe environment, without vehicles, and push themselves to see how quickly they can finish their hot lap.
“The event will be held at 8am on Sunday 26 November and runners will have one hour to complete the full circuit. We have strict time limits in place with competitors having to reach the King and Queen of the Mountain point at McPhillamy Park within 30 minutes, and cross the finish line within 60 minutes. These time limits are essential to ensure the safety of competitors who are participating.
“We are grateful for the support of Council in holding this event, and their assistance with traffic and event management.
