Overview

Summit Shoalhaven aka King of the Mountain

This event has been moved to the 4th October pending approval by local and state health officials. 

It’s hard to keep a great icon hidden, so the team from Elite Energy thought it was time to relaunch and revamp one of Australia’s most iconic off-road trail events, the Shoalhaven King of the Mountain.

Established in 1966 by a small team of local running enthusiasts from the Nowra Athletics Club, this iconic event has seen thousands of runners make the journey from Cambewarra Village to Kangaroo Valley over the iconic Mount Scanzi finishing in the Kangaroo Valley Showground. In these early days, every runner was welcomed by freshly baked scones, jam, and cream from the local CWA ladies. So in 2020, just 54 years after the first KOM, we will launch Summit Shoalhaven.

We’ve adjusted some the original courses to enable the event to be held while keep COVID-19 transmission risks to a minimum. The new event will incorporate a 60km, 45km, 28km, 13km and shorter events catering for the full spectrum of runners from elite to the weekend warrior.

Take a peek at the new 60km course

 

Kangaroo Valley is one of the south coast villages that have been severely affected by the 2019/2020 bushfires. So we ask when considering entering this iconic event that you choose to stay local, eat local, spend local and “Love the Valley”.
