Wildroo Ultra Trail Marathon routes

The race route has a total elevation gain of 632m and a maximum elevation gain of 154m. The route travels south along Cape de Couedic Road offering runners consistent elevation changes on primarily sealed roads, with the exception of a 2.5km trail section. Diverting east via Boxer Drive, marathon runners are exposed to the elements on a breath-taking clifftop section that leads to the iconic Remarkable Rocks. Travel down the zig-zag boardwalk to the Remarkable Rocks stopping for a 'selfie' photo. Runners enjoy some respite as they travel downhill towards the coastal tip including a detour into Weirs Cove before passing by Cape de Couedic Lighthouse. Runners loop around the car park at the entrance to Admirals Arch, before being tested by a short climb that peaks at 4% incline. The finish line for both the half and full marathon is located directly in front of the Flinders Chase National Park visitors centre cafe.
