In 2024 as promised there will be a new course for the Ultra-Trail® 100 with more time under the canopy the shady and coolers Parks and Forests.
Runners will head to Twin Hills View Lookout and will then head west on Upper Pinbarren Road along with runners in the Hinterland Traverse 80 toward Woondum National Park.
After the ‘Steep Climb” to the ridgeline runners in the Ultra-Trail® will head 6km down to the valley floor to a new Checkpoint ( CP “M”) at Madill Road which is the 40km point.
After a few creek crossings and the cooler air of the National Park, runners will tackle the climb back up to the Water Station at James McKane Lookout (52km). As a guide runners will need to reach this point by no later than 2.30pm – 3pm ( 9 hours). This can be achieved by doing an average of 6km an hour (10 minutes per km) which is a brisk walking pace.
After James McKane Lookout the hard work is done and it is literally ‘All Downhill to Cooran (57km) and then onto Pomona (66km) !!”
With a revised ‘Cut Off’ of 5pm we have given all runners 11 hours to reach Pomona (66km) which we feel is achievable for ‘middle of the pack’ runners.
To comply with the State Government requirements all runners must be across Yurol Forest Drive by 6.15pm. Hence with a modified and slighty longer route for Ultra-Trail® 100 runners AFTER Pomona the cut off at Pomona has been pulled back to 5pm.
After crossing Yurol Forest Drive at Kidd Road, runners will do a 4.35km ‘Yurol Loop’ before continuing onto Checkpoint 5 at Lake MacDonald which needs to be reached prior to the 9pm ‘Cut Off”. From there it is a gentle downhill run to the finish.
