Mt Barker


Conquer The Summit 2023 was held on Sunday 26 March 2023. You can view all results here.

Conquer the Summit is a fun run event held annually in Mt Barker, in the Adelaide Hills, to raise money for Operation Flinders and other local charities.

The event is a major fundraiser of Mt Barker Lions and Rotary Clubs.

It is run through the Laratinga Wetlands and surrounding rural areas.
Laratinga (Lartingga-parri) Wetland was named after the traditional Peramangk people's meaning for Mount Barker Creek, “Flooding Land Creek”.

Originally a small community event, the race is now enjoyed by runners and walkers, both serious and social, from across Adelaide.


After leaving the wetlands, competitors follow a combination of roadside, firetrack, vineyard and single-track all the way to the top of Mt Barker Summit. 

With 5km, 10km and 20km options, you can now choose whether to finish your journey at the top of the mountain, or turn around and run back to the start.



Online registrations for the 2023 event are now closed.  However on-the-day registrations are being accepted between 7.00am & 7.30am 

Be sure to check out the merchandise.

The official 2023 Conquer The Summit T-shirt has been designed by indigenous artist David Booth, and pays homage to the significance of Mt Barker Summit to the Peramangk people.


Show your support! We need volunteers at the start/finish lines, drink stations and for marshalling activities. Be part of the fun, register below and we'll be in touch soon.
