//Ultra-Trail®  100

100KM RUN / 2438m vert/ the marquee event

//Race Details

Entries for 2023 Noosa Ultra-Trail® will open 1 September 2022

The Ultra-Trail® will be the same introductory course as 2022 incorporating a 10km out and back loop to the outskirts of Kin Kin. The course cut off has been extended by an additional 2 hours giving more athletes the chance to attempt this run.

It is still the intention to have a fully looped course and in 2024 the Ultra-Trail® 100 will see the course take the same outward course along Simpsons Road ridgeline but will then continue into the quaint township of Kin Kin before tackling the climb up into Woodrum National Park where it will rejoin the Hinterland Traverse route before heading down into Cooran.

Whatever the case the established Noosa Trail Network will form the backbone of the 100km route and with 2,438m of elevation will prove to be a solid workout for even seasoned trail and road runners.

To ensure athlete safety there will be cut off times.

Runners not making the 10.30am 1st Cut time off at Twin Hills View lookout will not be permitted to continue on the 100km course and will be redirected onto the 80km course.

Only athletes of high fitness and strength levels should consider this event in 2023. It would be expected that entrants in the 100km distance have previously completed a 50km trail run event.

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.
