In a Snapshot


4 MAY 2019

Congratulations to all participants in the 2019 Margaret River Ultra Marathon. It was an awesome weekend with more than 850 passionate runners from across Australia competing, and many doing the ultra for the first time.

What an incredible journey! The raw emotion displayed on the faces of finishers says it all!

Relive the race through the highlights video below:


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

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! 

"I witnessed beaches and coastal views unlike anything I’ve ever seen. All whilst conquering my first ultra with an amazing bunch of people. Can’t wait to come back." Tashie, 2018 Competitor
