17th October 2020
COVID-19 UPDATE (September): The Margaret River Ultra Marathon on 17 October 2020 WILL GO AHEAD as planned. If the WA border is still closed (to any or all states – including Victoria) we will still conduct the event with an experienced event crew. Keep training – stay safe.
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.

What an incredible journey! The 2019 event saw more than 850 passionate runners from across Australia competing, and many doing the ultra for the first time. The raw emotion displayed on the faces of finishers says it all!
