The Larapinta Trail is an iconic bucket list hiking destination for thousands of people around the world. Now ultra runners will have the opportunity to test themselves on 231km of spectacular single track in a new full length end to end, non-stop ultra race event being organised by the Alice Springs Running and Walking Club.
As well as the full length 231km ultra, there will be options of a 65km ultra race from Standley Chasm, a 25km distance from Simpsons Gap and a family orientated fun run of 5km, all finishing at the Historic Alice Springs Telegraph Station. The ultra distances include relay options. This unique experience will allow us to integrate runners from all distances finishing at the Telegraph Station on the same day allowing for a real festival experience.
The 231km event covers all 12 stages of the iconic Larapinta Trail, starting Friday 24th May at 0600, with a 66 hour cutoff, starting from Mt Sonder.
The 65km event starts from Standley Chasm Car Park on Sunday 26th May at 0630, with cutoff at 11:59pm that evening.
