A BMF GUIDED MIDWEEK RUN ON THE ULTRA TRAIL AUSTRALIA COURSE.

Get some quality training done on the toughest part of the UTA50 and UTA100 courses with the experienced Trainers at Blue Mountains Fitness! See where your training is at for the big event in May.

BLUE MOUNTAINS FITNESS is one of only a few companies with a National Parks and Wildlife ECO PASS licence to carry out run training on the Ultra Trail Australia course. We have been training runners to complete the arduous UTA course for the last 8 years. We have highly experienced trainers who know the trails better than most. In 2018 we trained 148 runners over the various distances of UTA with a 97% successful completion rate.

WHY? This is a perfect training run to get a look at the UTA50 and UTA100 course or see what you need to work on in the next 6 months.

THE COURSE. This training run will start and finish at Scenic World
Total Distance - around 11 to 15km with optional extra k's on the way for faster/fitter runners.
We'll also have an extra Furber Steps down/up rep for those that haven't had enough!

We'll head from Scenic World to Echo Point, down Giant Stairs and along to Leura Forest. We'll ascend the tough Leura Stairs and then descend back down to Leura Forest.  From there we will follow the last 3k's of the UTA22/50/100 along the bottom off the 3 Sisters and up Furber Steps. We'll do an optional extra K run  before this run.

There is always an extra down/up Furber Stairs Rep available too at the end of the scheduled run for the fitter runners!

Remember we are fully licensed and fully insured and arrange transport back to your cars after the training..

GEAR. We will be using this as a race day prep run and ask you to bring the UTA50 Mandatory gear:
