Australian Outback Marathon

Saturday 28 July


Make the Australian Outback Marathon the running event of your year! On 28 July, Ayers Rock Resort once again plays host to the most unique Australian running event on the running calendar.

Although this race is popular with local runners, for most, it's a once in a lifetime experience, with entrants participating from all over the world. It's not every day marathoners get to take in the stunning views of Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) as the kilometres tick by.

Enjoyed by both professional runners, club runners, casual runners and beginners, there are events for all running levels including the full marathon, half marathon, 11km and 6km fun runs. In addition to its beauty, the course is relatively flat, with only a couple inclines and sand dunes. Most of the course is on unsealed roads, bush tracks and soft-sand trails, with a few small sand dunes and plenty of Australia's famed "Red Earth" thrown in for good measure.

The itineraries are designed to suit all budgets and travel plans with each package including shuttle services, first class accommodation, and guaranteed race entry.

This event is unique and is not just about finishing the chosen distance- it's about being amongst the most iconic of Australian landscapes and enjoying the natural beauty of the area. Don't miss out on your chance to compete in this amazing Australian race. Contact us today and we will help you get there in 2018.
