I love Noosa, it is a beautiful place with a rich history in endurance events. As someone who has seen first hand the growth of trail running, I’m excited to come up to Noosa – so join me at the Noosa Ultra-Trail, a fun and challenging new run festival in the Noosa hinterland. With different distances to choose from, there is a race for everyone.

As a local I love the diversity of the landscapes and friendliness in the small towns. I’ve been part of the discussions with the community about the Trail Network upgrades and how to make the trails more usable, so it’s great to see a new event like the Noosa Ultra-Trail enticing more people to our patch of paradise.
