The different categories call for different levels of fitness, so prior to the event, it is paramount that visitors are well versed with the terrain of their chosen category.

The 6 kilometre course will have participants take the walking trail from Parklands up to Tandarra Road before joining the Fyans Creek trail that leads up to the Aboriginal Cultural Centre at Brambuk and back. For those taking the 12 kilometre course, the course proceeds from the cultural centre to the tranquil Lake Bellfield and back. Fitness enthusiasts and professional runners can push themselves further to finish the 21 kilometre marathon.

The location of Run the Gap means that participants get to appreciate the biodiversity within the national park. Wildlife including wallabies, echidnas, emus and kangaroos are easy to spot during the run. The finishing point is Halls Gap village which offers magnificent views of the Serra Ranges with picture-perfect moments at sunset. After the race, participants get to enjoy sumptuous barbecue at Halls Gap Parklands, a family-friendly getaway within the Grampians.

Run the Gap is not centred on fitness alone; proceeds from the event are go towards the improvement of walking trails and cycling tracks within Halls Gap. The event is scheduled every year and interested participants are required to register online on the event’s website.
