Australian Outback MarathonTerrigal, New South Wales, AU

The Australian Outback Marathon has four running events; the full marathon, half marathon, 11km run and 6km run which all use sections of the same course. The terrain varies throughout the course; with most on unsealed roads, bush trails and tracks. The red earth route takes runners on a journey through Australias Outback with stunning views of Ayers Rock.

Like most adventure marathons around the world, the varying terrain does not measure to AIMS standards even though it has been measured and certified by an official AIMS course measurer Just so you know!

What you need to know about Marathon running

The marathon is the benchmark for any runner. Its history stretches back to the Ancient Greeks, and it now includes all the world’s most iconic running races. At 26.2 miles, it’s a massive test of physical and mental resilience. If it’s a PB you’re after, you can choose a fast, flat city course, or else go for a more challenging trail run in one of the world’s most stunning locations.

Think a marathon might be pushing it? Why not ease yourself in with a 5k or 10k run instead?
