2022 Entries Closed
Please note there will be only one vehicle pass in the race pack for each ultra participant or team. We highly encourage car pooling due to there only being limited parking available and to reduce carbon emissions. If you wish to have more than one car enter Walyunga National Park or Avon Valley National Park you will have to purchase additional park passes at the entry gate (cards accepted). Please note you can purchase an ANNUAL local park pass online from DBCA for just $25/year, this can only be done before the event.
The start is at Boongarup Pool. Watch the start of the event, get involved to generate excitement and an atmosphere. We will also have some music and a coffee van at the start line (BRING CASH as there is no phone reception) to keep you entertained and energetic whilst the runners complete their final preparations.
In winter this is one of Perth’s most picturesque locations. There is two large car parks. Please be very careful on the entry / exit road as it is only wide enough for one car to pass through and is on a very steep incline / decline. Patience will be required. The runners will pass over the bells rapid bridge and through the border of the back carpark to the Orlov Tunnel. Spectators DO NOT cross the railway, trains pass frequently and are hard to see when approaching. You can however use the Orlov Tunnel where the runners pass through.
Here you can drop off a relay runner for Leg 2 and look at the beautiful view of the Swan Valley. There is a small carpark, however lots of room for verge parking on Rollinghills Drive. Please be mindful of people's driveways. There is overflow parking on Botanic Loop. Please don't walk on the road and stick to the verge.
This is a stunning location with views down stream to the start line and views up stream towards Toodyay. Here you can drop off a relay runner for Leg 3 and park at the lookout or park at the overflow parking inside Paruna as directed. Please take care on your way to this location as O'Brien rd is a popular cyclist and also car enthusiast circuit. There are lots of large bends in the road, there is also a single lane bridge. Ewing road is a straight, flat wide gravel rd that a well maintained 2WD should handle easily at an appropriate speed. There is a fire pit and coffee van accessible here inside Paruna.
This is a new location for 2022. Spectators are now welcome to join their Leg 4 runner to this location. You can access this point off Copley-Dale Rd. There is an 800m straight and flat gravel rd to the aid station. Please drive slowly, it is a two way road and is quite narrow. Patience will be required.
Please note you still have to drive 800m up the gravel track after reaching this map link. Refer to the interactive map above for more detail.
In 2022 the Valley Campground aid station will now be accessible to spectators. We have also been granted permission for people to drive all the way down to Valley Campground. Please drive SLOWLY, the road has recently been graded and widened slightly. However, it is all gravel and unmarked. Please be considerate with parking at the campground. Please also note there is a lot of wildlife in this region so it is very high risk that something will jump out in front of the car. Please take extra care.
This is the finish line location. Please be very careful as there is a considerable amount of wildlife in this region that might jump out in front of the car, especially around dusk. We will have a couple food / drink vans for you too choose from and some activities to keep the kids and adults entertained. Help us build an atmosphere and chant in the runners to celebrate their huge triumph.
