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 11 years. We have highly experienced trainers who know the trails better than most. Remember we are fully National Parks Eco Pass licensed and fully insured.
WHY? This is a perfect training run to get a look at the stairs sections of the UTA 22, 50 and 100 courses or just see where you are at with your training.
THE COURSE. Following the UTA22 course from Scenic World we'll start off on some sneaky hills up Cliff Drive and head on to Narrow Neck. Down the tricky Golden Stairs and along technical terrain of 'The Landslide'. Then we'll head through Leura Forest and up Leura Stairs to Prince Henry Cliff Top. Quick out and back along this track and return to Scenic World. For those wanting more distance and UTA stairs we'll have plenty of options to add those in on this course.
START AND FINISH. At Scenic World
GEAR. We will be using this as a race day prep run and ask you to bring the UTA22 Mandatory gear.
