Runner or walker, 18 or 80, 1-day or weekend... let's bust the myth that ultra marathons are for elite athletes only
IS IT FOR ME? Ultra marathons are only for elite endurance runners, experienced in sprinting up snow-topped mountains and crossing vast, barren deserts, right?
Try telling that to our participants! We have a huge variety of people who love our events from mums and dads, nurses and teachers, students to grandparents. We attract weekend ramblers, post-work yoga lovers and social runners. One of the key things they all share is our mantra ‘More is in you’. With the support of each other, we all have the ability to make it to the finish line!
Let’s be honest, this challenge will not be easy but the best things in life take commitment and dedication. It will require you to train and prepare for the event, but we believe with enough focus and support, anything is possible.
Our events are designed to challenge, but when you are struggling up to the top of that hill, we believe it is always better to do it with a smile on your face.
We want our walkers and runners to leave the finish line with an unimaginable sense of achievement and a lifetime of amazing memories!
We won’t lie, training isn’t easy! Juggling family and social life and work is no walk in the park, however, we strive to make your journey as smooth as possible. Above all, you will have an incredible crew and the most incredible community to share the experience and keep you motivated from sign-up to start line.
Check out our blog to see real stories of how people find the balance.
Taking on your first ultra marathon can be daunting… to say the least.
