Steps to
the Seven Summits

We chat to Bogong customer Simon Gower who recently summited Everest.

You could say that seaside Geelong and Mt Everest are worlds apart but not for Australian mountaineer Simon Gower. In May this year he summited Everest, the final jubilant chapter of his ambitious project to summit the highest peaks of the seven continents.  We were delighted to have the opportunity to talk to Simon and hear his account of what many would regard as one of the ultimate “holy grails” of outdoor adventure....READ ON

This Sunday the much anticipated La Sportiva, Lake Mountain Skyrun will take place at Lake Mountain.
This premier event promises to be an exciting race with many well known Victorian mountain runners lining up in the field. Some say a few of Bogong's own may be donning their runners to put on a good show! - including that mysterious "dark horse", Bogong owner Neil Blundy. So why not head on up, enjoy the spectacle and see what the burgeoning world of Mountain Running is all about.
