EARLY BIRD DATES APPLY!
There's no denying that the Australian ultra calendar has more than enough choice in events.
The explosion of the scene means runners have a veritable smorgasboard of venues and distances to choose from in just about every state and territory across the country.
So why is the UHS any different?
It is definitely different.
Built for runners who like adventure, who like the challenge of self-reliance, and who like their events to be different, the UHS offers all three.
Each of the four events offer unique challenges: the Run Adelaide Hundred is a loop course taking in both road and trail, Worlds End is set in the dead of winter in the coldest region in SA, Cape to Bay is an unforgiving coastal section of the Heysen, and Paingana is a "quad-killer" multi-loop course 20mins from the Adelaide CBD.
Each route uses established course markers only, with the exception of Paingana.
Aid stations are more spread apart, with mandatory gear lists in place and runners expected to come prepared.
But if the joy is in the challenge, then these events are positively joyous!
After putting on a good taste test of events in 2021, the Ultra Hard Series is back again to intimidate and inspire!
Run Adelaide Hundred, Worlds End, Cape to Bay, and Paingana will all push entrants to their limits. And more than likely beyond.
With one of the events south of Adelaide, two in the greater metro area, and one in the mid north, the Series will also be a fantastic way to see this beautiful state. From bushy coastal vistas to harsh rocky northern terrain, going beyond your limits never came with a better view.
And for the extra motivated amongst us the Series also offers the opportunity to crown the ultimate ultrmarathoner, the person/s who perform at the highest the most consistently across at least three of the four events.
