The Ultra Marathon is internationally recognised again in 2016 and competitors from this event will be selected to represent Australia at the World Ultra Marathon Championships.
The Australian Running Festival gives participants the opportunity to go 'beyond the marathon' and compete in a 50km Ultra Marathon. This option is popular with ultra runners seeking a fast 50km course, marathon runners seeking to step up to ultra race and participants training for such events as the Comrades Marathon. Participants looking to enter the Ultra Marathon will need to pre-register.
Ultra Marathon participants to maintain 8min 30 sec per km or better.
