Yurrebilla Trail 56km Ultra

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.

What you need to know about Running Events

Running is the world’s most accessible sport. Park runs, colour runs, 5k, 10k, half marathons, marathons and ultras — all you need is a pair of trainers and off you go. Running events are hugely popular on Let’s Do This and it’s a sociable sport, so get some friends involved and achieve something extraordinary.

If you’re starting small, the 5k and 10k events are great fun and definitely worth doing even if you’re training for a bigger challenge further down the line. Getting used to the atmosphere of an event is important. You’re so much more likely to hit a better time if there’s a crowd cheering you on, people in fancy dress and a big celebration at the finish line.

Find local Running races

Today, with international organisations, local clubs and national events to choose from, there are thousands of races to discover, and we want to help you find them quickly and easily. Below you’ll find selections by running type, running location and some exceptional events to take part in.
