In a Snapshot

Congratulations to all runners who participated in the inaugural Margaret River Ultra Marathon held on 5th May!

Wasn’t it just superb... the weather was perfect, the race atmosphere was electric and the course provided a breathtaking journey though this spectacular coastal landscape.

We were totally stoked with the event and by the looks on people faces and the ecstatic celebrations at the finish line it looked like everyone else was too! WELL DONE!

WELCOME TO THE MARGARET RIVER ULTRA MARATHON...

An incredible journey through the forests, trails, beaches and bluffs on the beautiful Cape to Cape coastline in South West WA.

Starting on the brilliant white sands at Hamelin Bay, the 80km point to point course passes through a diverse range of breathtaking landscapes, from awe-inspiring Karri tree forests to cliff top trails providing views up and down the coast.

You will run past famous surf breaks, iconic wineries and charismatic coastal villages in a journey that is as magical as the Margaret River region is beautiful.

Tackle the race as a solo competitor and run the full 80km course or team up with a group of friends and complete the course as a relay team of up to 5 people doing one (or more) legs each.

Whether you're an ultra-marathon rookie or long-distance devotee, make The Margaret River Ultra Marathon your next goal and be part of this special new event in this magnificent part of the world.
