Oceania's newest Ultra-Trail, taking place in Australia's alps, the Snowy Mountains, amongst granite outcrops and snow gum forests, is crafted to create the ultimate runner's high.
Welcome to Ultra-Trail Kosciuszko by UTMB
Our team’s search for a new destination that delivers on the promise of epic scenery, super fun trails, and the ultimate trail running high has come to an end – and it just had to be here. The Snowy Mountains... rooftop of Australia and mother nature at her breathtaking best. Snow gum forests pierced by crystal clear mountain streams. Alpine meadows and granite outcrops. A place synonymous with adventure and all part of this new, unique trail running festival that honours its pedigree and welcomes friends new and old to something a little bit special. Oceania's newest Ultra-Trail returns 7-9 December 2023.
Distances to suit every ability
Nature at its best. An untamed countryside where the fresh mountain air, big skies, pure waters, expansive vistas provide a spectacular destination quite unlike any other.
You’ll come for the epic trails and end up staying a while for a cheeky local brew, a spot of fishing or just relaxing lakeside with family and friends in Australia’s ultimate alpine playground.
From ascending Australia’s highest peak to running through alpine meadows, criss-crossing mountain streams, skirting crystal-clear lakes and darting through snow gum forests … the highly runnable and uniquely varied trails will keep you guessing and deliver new delights around every corner.
The smile you get from running on trails never goes away at Kosciuszko.
The journey to your finish line is one you never have to do alone.
Ultra-Trail Kosciuszko by UTMB is designed with our entire community in mind. Unrivalled support crew access and unique spectator points put your crew at the heart of the action. Your crew will have just as much fun chasing you around the Snowy Mountains as you will running it.
Our course sits on the traditional land of the Monero – Ngarigo people who have looked after this land, water and community for over 60,000 years. We thank them for all they have done and continue to do to look after their country, a special place which we all love and respect.
