The 2nd Annual Federation Ultra Trail will be held on Sunday, July 28th 2019.
The run is a trail based event held predominantly on the Lavender/Federation Trail and will take in the new Callington Hill "Olearia Trail" with breathtaking views over the Bremmer Valley before descending upon the Frahn's Farm Conservation Project area. The halfway point and starting place for the 25km Event is at Monarto Sports Complex where runners will pass the Monarto Zoo where wild African animals can be glimpsed and heard. The run takes in the stunning new trails of the Kinchina Conservation Park and wonderous Rocky Gully before a final burst around the wetlands and alongside the River Murray to finish at the trailhead in Murray Bridge. Runners who finished the 50km distance in 2018 have unlocked the ability to tackle the Level 2 Run (62.5Km) or Level 3 (75km) distances.
"UNLOCK AND LOAD" Level Up format:
Runners who complete the beast that is the 50km Ultra trail will hold the key to "UNLOCK" Level 2 on their return to subsequent Federation Ultra Trails. Level 2 will be a trail extension of approx 12.5km and only runners who finish each Level can go on to "UNLOCK" a new level and increasing Federation Ultra Trail distance. Those that can defeat each year Levels distance will have the ability to take on, on their 5th successful attempt, the Ultimate prize, the 100km Demon that is the Federation Centurion Trail.
