AUSTRALIA DAY ULTRA
100KM, 75KM, 50KM AND 25KM ULTRA MARATHON EVENTS
ALONG THE LESCHENAULT INLET
Entries open! for 2024 for 25km, 50km 75km and 100km events at Australind Western Australia
After being drawn to the beauty of this area, and running along this stretch of coast in and around the Leschenault Peninsula over many years, I have have felt drawn to share this beautiful area with other like minded running enthusiasts. I have looked for a slot in the Ultra running and Marathon calendar where there was very little happening for an opportunity to open this beautiful gem up to the running community.
One slot that did not seem to interfere with any other major events was the weekend of Australia Day …………….the dates may change slightly each year, but hey let’s just call it the Australia Day Ultra !
The course is mapped out as a 12.5 km out and back ( 2 x laps for 25 km, 4 x laps for 50 km, 6 x laps for 75 km and 8 x laps for 100 km + 6 km Kids Event) along the Australind Foreshore, taking in the scenic Cathedral drive through the paperbark walk. ( This was the old Bunbury road once apon a lifetime). There will be an aid station at each end of the course (6.25 km) apart along with a self serve water station at the 3 km mark so there would be no need to carry water or supplies other than the mandatory gear. There are amenities at the Australind end with decent parking a service station and shops. Toilet blocks and playgrounds are located at the Start/Finish line and at the 2 km mark ( Fees Field). There are no significant road crossing and the foot traffic will be separated from vehicle traffic, though you can park on the side of the track all along the length of the proposed course.
We are set for a Midnight start time for the 100 km and 75 km, 3 am start for the 50 km, 6 am start for the 25 km, and a 9 am start for the Kids 6 km run to beat the heat!
This is going to be Very Flat and Very Fast, the perfect PB course.
This is AURA Approved and we offer discounts on the entry fee for AURA members. This is a certified course, so records will be up for the taking for those willing to push themselves that little bit harder.
Hope to see you out there.
