The Yurrebilla Trail 56k Ultra was initially run as a social run to have a look at the beautiful Yurrebilla Trail as it criss-crossed the Mount Lofty Ranges. The first run was incredibly well catered for, it generated stirring cameraderie, and the feeling of achievement of covering the 56k in a day set the scene for all Yurrebillas.
The run is a beauty, never more than 12 kilometres from the City of Adelaide and the atmosphere on the day generates deep feelings of well-being. The initial run was so successful it was repeated the next year and has grown to become one of Australia's most popular ultra-trail events.
Never more than 12 km from the centre of Adelaide, the trail offers stunning views, amazing gorges, waterfalls, wildlife and wildflowers. Commencing at Belair Railway Station in the south, the trail climbs 1865 metres and descends 2060 metres before it reaches its destination at Ambers Gully, Athelstone. Runners are required to run on only a few roads which connect the end of one bush track to the start of another trail.
The Yurrebilla Trail Ultra Marathon™ is an ideal event for all comers. It is not only for those people who want to race hard, it is also a great event for people who are new to ultramarathons and want to see if they have what it takes. The focus of the event is on supporting runners of all abilities to complete the 56km trail with support stops along the route. The closeness of the trail to services by way of access roads and fire tracks also guarantees runner safety, without lessening in any way the experience of a unique bush trail
