From the VP (Sep ’18)

September 2018 is shaping up to be one of the biggest for ultra racing in Australia.  Australia’s first 200mi event, the Nerang 200mi got underway on Thursday (with 100mi, 100km and 50km across the weekend), and we see the return of six day racing to Australia this Sunday with the start of the Adelaide 6d event (incorporating 24h & 48h). We’ve already had three 100mi trail events this month (Great North Walk, Glasshouse and WTF), a 24h event (BUTTER24) along with one of Australia’s largest running festivals at the Surf Coast Century. For those looking for an event to participate in the next 12 months, we’ve never had more choice in Australia or New Zealand.  We’ll have the 2019 AURA calendar online in the next month or so, but if you’d like to look further abreast, I also maintain a calendar of AUS/NZL events via the DUV site here. I aim to keep this as comprehensive as possible – please email me if you are aware of any upcoming Ultra events that are not shown (noting DUV’s requirement to only include events of 45km+). We hope to announce the 2019 AURA National Championship events shortly.  The committee has agreed to a short list, but is in further discussion with the event organisers and our national selection committee to ensure the best available selection. Australian team performance at 100km worlds...
