It has been announced that entries for Australia’s biggest trail running festival, Ultra-Trail Australia 2017, will begin to open at 10am on Wednesday October 12th.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Ultra-Trail Australia will be a four-day trail running festival of unprecedented scope; it’s the UTA 10th birthday party!

From May 18 – May 21, 2017, Katoomba, NSW, will play host to over 12,000 athletes, spectators and support crew, converging for a four-day trail running extravaganza. Underpinned by the flagship UTA100 and UTA50 events, 2016 saw the addition of the Pace UTA22 and the Scenic World UTA951 stair race. Both events were extremely well received and successful and will be featuring on the Ultra-Trail Australia schedule again in 2017!

2016 also saw the introduction of the expanded Ultra-Trail Australia Event Expo, an energetic and dynamic festival style expo celebrating the world of ultra trail running and adventure. In 2017, the UTA Expo will engage the 12,000 plus visitors that Ultra-Trail Australia attracts as well as many local Blue Mountains residents. With exhibitors from the adventure, running and trail-running industries as well as stallholders from the wider Blue Mountains community showcasing local arts and produce, the UTA expo will have something for everyone!

Harnessing massive community support and countless volunteers Ultra-Trail Australia epitomises the self-giving spirit of Australia and its people and attracts a large contingency of international runners. The event is renowned for unfailing camaraderie amongst athletes and helpers alike. The carefully mapped courses showcase the lush rainforests, ethereal waterfalls, vast tablelands, stunning rock formations and breath-taking views of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. Ultra-Trail Australia stands as a celebration of our pristine wilderness and the unlimited potential of the human spirit.
