Mt Solitary UltraKedumba Valley Rd, Wentworth Falls NSW 2782, Australia

We have had many requests over the years to also include the Mt Solitary half, held only in Season 1, back into the Mt Solitary Ultra. Running from Queen Victoria to the Golden Stairs, the logistics of this far was too much for a young organization. In recent years, we have discussed this a few times, considered everything, said no a few more times, thought about it again and then decided it was time to do something similar again we know we can do this now, but with a few changes! So this year, on the eve of the Season Ten we are trialing on the trail Mount Solitary Teams for 2019!

Wild Horse CriteriumUnnamed Road, Coochin Creek QLD 4519, Australia

Inaugurally staged in 2010, the Wild Horse Criterium has become one of the most popular events on the SEQ trail running calendar.

With options for walkers, runners, hikers and children, there's truly something for everyone. The event was originally conceived as the ideal stepping stone for those transitioning from road or simply starting running - an ideal introduction to trail given the varying surface underfoot, it has also developed to included much for the more adventurous.

There are three options at 'ultra' distance that start during the night. Running in the dark under headlight is a fantastic experience and, if you're thinking about dipping your toe into the ultra scene, there's no better place to start.

  • Did the 50 Km in 2018

    Convicts & Wenches is a beautiful and scenic run never straying far from the coast line. The scenery of isolated beaches, rugged headlands and breathtaking ocean views keep you engaged from start to finish. There is not a dull moment and it is difficult to say with certainty which part of the course is my favourite. I have ran this race for the past 7 years (5x 50km and 2x 25km) and I keep coming back for more.
  • Did the 12 Km in 2018

What you need to know about Ultramarathon running

An ultramarathon is any running race longer than a traditional marathon of 26.2 miles. Most of them take place on trails, often surrounded by spectacular scenery, and involve continuously stuffing your face to keep your body going mile after mile. At the extreme end, ultras can involve running more than 300km over multiple days through mountains, deserts, jungles and snow. But if this is your first ultra, you might want to start with something a little shorter, like a “gentle” 50km.
