Feel the kilometres slip by as you take in the as you take in the awe-inspiring sight of Uluru…” (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas). This inspiring backdrop will encourage both professional marathoners and amateur runners to work through ‘the burn’ and break personal records. Most of the course is on unsealed roads complete with Australia’s famed ‘red earth’ underfoot. The Australian Outback has the most beautiful night skies and unpolluted air, mix this with a unique adventure marathon and you have a spectacular trip. The marathon and half marathon starts at 7.45am and there is an 8 hour cut off time and no qualifying races are required.
