The Alpine Challenge is without doubt Australia's toughest mountain trail ultra offering a range of distances from 36 / 60 / 100 / 160km. Set in the Alpine National Park in N.E. Victoria and starting and finishing at Falls Creek Alpine Village the course offers runners the options of 4 courses and the ability to run as a; solo runner, in an endurance team or as part of a relay team.
The Alpine Challenge covers Victoria's highest peaks including Mount Bogong, Mount Feathertop, Spione Kopje, Mount Hotham and Mt McKay. 7,000m in 160km. It has a DNF rate of 36% and shouldn't be underestimated (NB in 2017 due to weather conditions the DNF rate spiked at 51%).
You don't have to do it all in your first year, try one of the easier options and come back the next year and step up to a longer distance, you will love it and want to come back.
