//Race Details

Entries for Noosa Ultra-Trail® 2022 will open 1 September 2021

The Forest 15 is for anyone wishing to experience a morning in one of Noosa’s iconic forests for some off road running, jogging or even power walking!

Whilst there is only one hill to navigate a reasonable degree of fitness is required to tackle this little gem. Rest assured in the world of trail running distances can be deceiving and things are often harder than they appear on paper!

So for novice trail runners, those wishing to ‘step up’ from a 10km road run or to even get some dirt under their shoes or to even see what the fuss is all about then this is a good entre to our world!

With a looped course in Tewantin Forest Reserve this run is 63% trail / soft surface and 37% paved surface. There is some nice variety including some ‘single track’ as well as sections where you can let loose a little!

Some training on trails is recommended before you try this event to get used to soft and sometimes rocky or unstable terrain you find in the forests and national parks.

Having said all of that you can simply walk if it all becomes too much!!

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.

I always love being part of an inaugural event, particularly when it involves heading north! I’m ‘stoked’ to be a part of the Noosa Ultra-Trail® happening in March.

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.

I’m so excited to be teaming up with Noosa Ultra-Trail®, a brand new event coming to my home town in 2022. Living an active lifestyle and enjoying the outdoors is a huge part of my life and incredibly important in order to live well and be healthy! I can’t wait to share yoga and its benefits to the runners participating in the event.
