margaret river ultra marathon

5th may 2018


the race

80km // +1730m gain -1635M loss // individual or relay teams of up to 5 

The Margaret River Ultra Marathon gives you 80 kilometres of magnificent trail running through one of the most breathtaking regions of Australia - the Cape to Cape coastline of south west Western Australia.

It's a new event from our friends from Rapid Ascent who are no strangers to putting on epic events in epic locations.  That's great news for runners who can expect first class service all the way and experience supreme organisation from start to finish.  We're super pumped at how picturesque this course is, not only for the runners, but also for support crew and spectators alike.

Not sure if you've got 80km in the legs?  Then maybe the relay option is for you - teams of 2-5 runners can complete one or more legs each varying in length between 10km and 20km

the place

Margaret River is a true gem nestled only a couple of hours south of Perth, along the South West coast of Australia.  At first glance it appears to be a sleepy coastal village, but dig a little deeper and you'll find plenty of fun to keep you busy either side of the run.

Surrounded by premium wineries, extraordinary architecture and amazing vistas of undulating vineyards, it is the lush forest, the river and the surf breaks that add an extra dimension to your trail running holiday.  At night time the town comes alive with fantastic foodie restaurants, wine bars and pubs with live music.

As far as trail running holidays go we think Margaret River has it all - decadent food, internationally renowned wine, surfing, adventure activities and plenty of time out in nature!
