The Ultra Marathon is internationally recognised again in 2018 and is the AURA Australian Championship event for 50km. Competitors from this event will be selected to represent Australia at the World Ultra Marathon Championships.

The Canberra Times Australian Running Festival presented by Tata Consultancy Services 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.
