Tackle the 25% gradient up one of Launceston’s steepest streets

Not quite a fun run, St.Giles Burn is a 400 metre bolt up one of Launceston’s steepest streets, where the gradient reaches 25%  This community and family focused event was established in 2014, and since then thousands of Tasmanians have accepted the challenge to run, walk, or ride the up one of Launceston’s steepest hills.

The St.Giles Burn helps raise funds for items not covered by the NDIS, such as equipment upgrades, therapy resources, community programs and improvements to housing for people with a disability so they have a place that feels like home. 

St.Giles Burn has been embraced by sportspeople like former World Tour cyclist Richie Porte, Commonwealth Games Triathlon gold medalist Jake Birtwhistle, and Australian cricketing legend David Boon.

Want to be a part of the fun?

A community event that’s attracts hundreds of participants each year, the Burn is generously supported by a number of local businesses and organisations  – contact our Sponsorship team if you’d like to come on board for our next instalment.
