The Emperor’s Challenge Route


Route Improvements from 2011

In 2009 the course was run on Babcock Mountain for the first time. In 2010 and 2011 improvements were made to the route, making for less travel on exploration roads and more challenging single track trail through impressive scenery and meadows, valleys and beside bizarre rock formations . The route now leaves the exploration road at km 6.5 and stays in the wilderness until it crosses the road at the water station at km 8.5.  It then heads up a gully. There are about 300 metres of two-way traffic here – downhill runners follow the same route. The water station is therefore used twice (at km 8.5 and km 14). When proceeding uphill along this two-way stretch, please keep right, and give right of way to the faster downhill participants.

For 2013, the route has been improved between the km XII and km XIII (km 12 and km 13). The old route crossed a high plateau; the new route veers closer to the edge of the mountain, making for more technical running and providing outstanding views. These route improvements do not affect total distance (still 20 kms) or elevation change. Click here for map PDF.
