The FreshChoice Luxmore Grunt event

The 27km FreshChoice Luxmore Grunt is held on the first section of the Kepler Track and although a shorter distance than the full FreshChoice Kepler Challenge which follows the entire Kepler Track at 60km, the shorter 27km course up to Luxmore Hut and return is fittingly named the Grunt. Leaving from the Control Gates, an easy 5.6km to Brod Bay turns to a steady, well graded further 8.2km climb to the Luxmore Hut check point at 1085m. The course then returns back down the same track to the control gates to complete the course.

This year's race will be held on Saturday 1st December 2018.

Other info:

The highest point is at the 'Luxmore Hut' (1085m).

There are 3 drink stations in total (two, one of which is visited twice) - see map
