Federation Ultra Trail routes

Starting at Monarto Sports Ground next to Monarto Zoo, the trail follows the Lavender Federation trail via a unique Monarto Woodlands Conservation area and up to Callington Hill to complete a full loop of the newly formed Olearia Trail. Runners then take the ridge top of the Eastern Lofty Ranges with stunning views of the Bremmer Valley before taking some sweet single trail to descend back to the Monarto Sports Complex to finish the first half of the course.

The second half and the beginning of the 25km course follow the Lav/Fed trail past Monarto Zoo and into the stunning Kinchina Conservation Park. Here, runners will see many kangaroos, unique rock formations and flora as they wind their way through Rocky Gully and ascend and descend White Hill and back onto the Lav/Fed trail.

The final kms take in pelican filled wetlands, the first bridge to span the Murray and a riverside finish at Sturt Reserve.
