An iconic South Australian trail running race, the Heysen 105 Ultra marathon is an endurance event like no other in Australia. Traversing a 105km section of the 1200km-long Heysen Trail, competitors experience the best trail running has to offer in the state, taking in rolling farmland, sandy forests, rocky hillsides and lots more. The views are spectacular through the magnificent conservation parks, with the backdrop of gum trees, abundant wildlife and both wide open spaces and closed in trails making this a truly Australian experience. Elevation gain is around 2400m, with the course record standing at 9h 51m 36s by Brendan Davies in 2014, and 11h 43m 20s by Joanna Kruk in the same year for the females.
