Margaret River Ultra Marathon routes

Utilising large sections of the famous ‘Cape to Cape’ walking track, the terrain underfoot is not overly technical and includes a range of trail types, from hard packed clay trails to soft sandy beaches with plenty of weaving single track between. It is unfair to call the course ‘flat’ but with a total ascent / descent of ‘just’ 1,700m the course is far from mountainous with long runnable sections that are a sheer delight to pass along.
