About this Race
Organisers, Ultra X have specifically designed this 220km five stage ultra marathon to ensure that each stage is totally unique and the event showcases the diversity and beauty of the country.
Each day from Monday to Friday involves one stage, which will commence between 04:00 and 08:00 and range between 30km and 70km. There are checkpoints stationed approximately 10km apart where competitors can access water, shelter, and, if necessary, support including physical therapists and medics.
Each night, competitors will camp in locations chosen to showcase the very best of the local area, where they can enjoy physiotherapy treatment, medical care, and hot water.
After the final stage on Friday, participants will have a chance to enjoy their first taste of ‘real food’ that week. The race organisers host a big BBQ around the campfire celebrating the success of every single competitor. The prize giving and awards ceremony also takes place, as well as some local entertainment.
