We searched the country for the best place to build what would be Australias most challenging, stunning and prestigious 100km Trail running event. The breath taking trails located in the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park of Australia was the obvious choice. Starting in 2008 as The North Face 100 and Marathon Pairs, the 50km was introduced in 2013. Ultra-Trail Australia has captivated runners locally and internationally and It has quickly grown to become one of the most talked about endurance events in Australian history.2016 will see us grow our 100km and 50km events to offer even more to our runners. With the introduction of the Pace UTA22, Scenic World UTA951 (Furber Stairs Time Trial), Event Expo and more, Ultra-Trail Australia will have something for everyone! Ultra-Trail Australia will be run over an adventure filled 5 days, it will be the biggest trail running party that Australia has ever seen! The Ultra-Trail Australia party will be an energetic and dynamic hub where runners of all abilities and their families can learn about trails, gear, nutrition, training, race strategy and more.
