The 24-hour event finished at 10am yesterday and raised about $2000 for The Valley Project.

Project chairman Steve Tripp said the weather was "beautiful" and the air was warm at the top of Mt Cargill.

"I went up 12 times," he said.

About four runners took part for the whole 24 hours.

About another 30 participated for a time.
