Sir Wilhelm Ernst Hans Franz Heysen OBE (known commonly as Hans) was a prominent South Australian artist and 9 times winner of the Wynne Prize. Famed for his Australian landscape paintings, he grew inspiration from the beauty of the Adelaide Hills through to the Flinders Ranges. It would be no coincidence that the 1200klm long world famous Heysen Trail traversing the same landscape is named after him. It’s no secret that the Heysen Trail is stunning with those varying landscapes throughout the entire length of the trail, and the Fleurieu Peninsula is no exception.
So 10 years back, a small group of runners had an ingenious idea to do a section fatass and immerse themselves in the trail love that is found in the Adelaide Hills. And so became the Heysen 105, which today is an iconic stable trail event on the SA calendar and proudly a part of the SA Five 50.
The iconic Heysen 105 celebrates it’s 10 year anniversary, and this year we are bringing you a very, very special edition.
For the first time ever, the event will run in reverse and start at Rocky Creek, and this year finishing along the Esplanade in Victor Harbor. AND you get the bonus value of an additional 10k to the 105 event in celebration!!
We have also added 10k to the traditional 60k event now running from Mount Compass to Victor and totalling 70k. The 37k distance is back running from Myponga Conservation Reserve to Victor, plus we have introduced new distances of 50k, 28k and 11k to add to this wonderful event
