Largest Ultra-Trail Event in Southern Hemisphere Katoomba

For all you outdoorsy, adventure-types out there, this is THE event to visit. Ultra Trail Australia is celebrating its tenth year on the 18 to 21 May with local and international athletes (as well as volunteers), descending onto Katoomba in the Blue Mountains to compete in the largest ultra trail marathon in the Southern Hemisphere.

Along with this running event, where you can join in or just cheer the competitors on, there will also be The Ultra-Trail Australia Event Expo. See everything running and adventure themed at the expo.

Join in the fun of the festival with family and friends and celebrate all things to do with the running and outdoor industry. If the energetic vibe moves you, join in the 'Scenic World 951', which is a 1.2km stair climb. Kids can join in too, there is the 'Injinji 1km-4-kids' - an under 15s event introducing children to trail running. Fitness, fun and adventure all rolled into one whilst taking in breathtaking views and nature all around you.

Breathe in the energetic atmosphere whilst browsing over 30 exhibitors showcasing the best the running industry offers, be entertained by local artists and keep kids happy with various kids activities throughout the Expo.

There will be two races, 100km and 50km, with checkpoints along the way to cheer competitors. You can grab a bite or coffee and soak in the views whilst cheering all the runners.
