Ultra/Trail

here at the Runner’s Tribe we welcome the news that ‘Run for Wild Places’ challenge has just launched.It’s a new challenge event for runners created by the guy who created the Takayna Ultra that takes places this April challenging you to get out in nature, clock your kilometres and support one of three epic grassroot environmental organisations.
On Sunday the 26th of June 2022 Transcend Trails is returning to the Avon Valley to offer their eco-friendly trail running event. The route cannot be completed any day of the week due to the large amount of private property permissions and general logistics required. Due to these barriers, there is a lot of excitement around the annual opportunity to explore the region. The race is within an hour of Perth and offers options for all:
The third Black Canyon Ultras of the year are being held this weekend, sponsored by HOKA and managed by Aravaipa Running. It's going to be an exciting event with the promise of Western States Golden Tickets at the finish line and a stellar field of runners.
For 10 years, the Run Larapinta Stage Race has been luring runners to the Red Centre to experience an unforgettable journey through a majestic landscape, one step at a time. Remarkably, the event has sold out in a record-breaking four hours of opening entries yesterday as 200 eager participants burst out of the starting blocks to secure their place at the bucket-list event.
In 2020, I had the pleasure of racing the takayna Ultra, well I only did the 21km event- but I'll claim it. takayna (Tarkine) is situated in Tasmania's north-west corner, and it is one of the most amazing places I have ever seen. It's up there with America's Yosemite, the Great Barrier Reef, or Brazil's Amazon. But few Australians have heard of it, and our politicians are quickly trying to destroy it.
In the heart of Western Australia's picturesque Avon Valley, the highly anticipated Transcend returns in 2024 with options for all fitness levels. Mark your calendars for 22 June, where you have the option to take part in the Kids Dash, 6km Hike, 6km Run, 40km Team Relay Hike (2-3 ppl 12/16/12km), 40km Hike, 65km Team Relay Run (2-5 ppl 12/12/12/16/12km) or the ultimate challenge, the 65km Ultra.
Entries are now open to the much-anticipated return of the Trail Running Series for 2021; conducted by event management leaders Rapid Ascent. Heading into its’ eleventh year, the Series features five trail run races at a range of beautiful wilderness locations all within an hour’s drive of Melbourne. Races are held from June through to October.
The Margaret River Ultra Marathon is going ahead as planned this Saturday 1 May 2021 in south-west, Western Australia, after the WA Government announced an end to the snap-lockdown at midnight Monday 26 April. Organisers Rapid Ascent will put relevant amendments in place to ensure the event follows current COVID-19 restrictions.
Hobart local Andrew Gaskell and Broome runner Sarah Ludowici have won an automatic entry onto the Australian team that competes at this year’s World Mountain and Trail Running Championships in Austria, after taking out the grueling 67km Ultra (Solo) event at this weekend’s kunanyi Mountain Run.
In the depths of midnight, precisely at the stroke of twelve, a lone figure found themselves midway between the second and third aid stations of the renowned Ultra-Trail Mt. Fuji (UTMF). This storied ultramarathon, the pinnacle of Asian trail running, had already witnessed 50 arduous kilometers conquered, leaving a formidable 115 kilometers yet to be surmounted. Amidst a sea of over 2,500 participants, our protagonist merged with a line of resolute runners, their collective determination piercing through the darkness.
