Ul­tra event or­gan­is­ers urge early re­gos

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Trades & Services -

Or­gan­is­ers of the Mar­garet River Ul­tra Marathon are urg­ing run­ners to reg­is­ter early to avoid miss­ing out on what is ex­pected to be an­other big event.

Or­gan­ised by Rapid As­cent, the event will take hun­dreds of run­ners along an 80km trail through coastal cliffs, rocky out­crops and sandy white beaches on May 4.

This year’s inau­gu­ral event at­tracted some 700 run­ners from across the coun­try and of­fered par­tic­i­pants the op­tion of tack­ling the en­tire track as a solo run­ner, or as part of a re­lay team of up to five peo­ple, run­ning be­tween 10km and 20km each. Cham­pion ul­tra run- ner Kel­lie Em­mer­son from Mel­bourne was part of the win­ning mixed re­lay team in May and said the run was amaz­ing and beau­ti­ful.

“I’ll def­i­nitely be back to run it again next year,” she said.

The course starts at Hamelin Bay and fin­ishes at the Cheeky Mon­key Brew­ery and Cidery at Wilyabrup.
