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.
Generously supported by Bathurst Regional Council, the track will be closed to traffic, 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:
3km – 30 minutes (near KOM and QOM at McPhillamy Park)
5km – 48 minutes
Finish, 6.2km – 1 hour
KOM and QOM will be located close to McPhillamy Park, at about the 3km mark. For the parkrunners, a 5km split will be timed on The Chase. 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; just like the iconic car race if you break down or don’t make it to the checkpoints in time, a bus will be on hand to get you back to the finish line.
