The Start of the Crackenback Challenge 2012

National Runners Week is on again in Thredbo this January. The runners spend a whole week in Thredbo with events every day from serious running races to fun runs, games, tennis tournaments,volley ball, mini biathlons and more. Thhis is a great event for the whole family or for more serious running enthusiasts

One of the more prestigious events on the program is the Crackenback Challenge, a grueling race from the Village to the Top of the Kosciusko Express Chairlift at Eagles Nest.    However fun is the focus of this 33 year old event and it has a great history  as Thredbo’s longest running summer event.   The Event is organised by the Canberra YMCA Runners Club.   For details or to enter contact
