In this episode of the Partnerunning Show we explore new territory as we meet Sean Greenhill the Race Director of a new event to the Australian running scene.
The Buffalo Stampede in the Victorian alpine country is expected to attract a bumper field of talented local and 
overseas runners as it forms the foundation stone of a planned Australia-New Zealand Skyrunning series. 
To be staged on April 5 and 6 next year, it is hoped that ultimately the Buffalo Stampede will join the elite list of Skyrunning World Series events like the Mont Blanc Marathon in France, Speedgoat 50 in the USA and the Mount Elbrus Vertical Kilometre in Russia. 
Skyrunning as a recognised discipline traces its roots back to Italian mountaineer Marino Giacometti and fellow enthusiasts who started pioneering races and records on famous European peaks like Mont Blanc in the 1990s.
