THE ROAD & TRAIL ULTRA - 50KM
Saturday 3rd August - 50kms - The Ultra
2019 will be the first time we have hosted the 50km ultra run. This event is run on a mixture of country-road, farm track and bush trails - therefore it is a combination of road running and trail running. The race will start on the banks of the Williams River, on the edge of Dungog and follow the Fosterton Road (tarmac) out towards Moylans Road where it will head up in to State Forest, with incredible bush tracks, before re-joining Fosterton Road and returning to Dungog. There are a few tough sections in the course (steep uphills) or uneven track, but overall this is a decent challenge in an amazing setting. Please note the final course map and elevations will be provided in May. The below is the most likely course, but since the course will run through State Forest there is a small chance that the trail might change slightly.
DATE: Saturday August 3, 2019
CUT OFF: 9 hours (4:30pm)
This is an event for a runner who understand the challenges of road and trail running over long distances and will check their location in order to stay on course. Although it will be marked, this event will require the carrying of mandatory gear and the ability to comfortably complete 50 kms in nine hours or less. The course will have three aid stations, so runners will need to carry water and nutrition.
For your safety, you must carry the following mandatory gear at all times.
Running race pack, with a thermal top or waterproof jacket, hat, suncream, mobile phone, whistle, survival blanket, nutrition, water.
