Trail running is not trail running without the support crews and spectators that bring the events to life! We encourage spectating and supporting all around each of our courses, but we do have a few notes for you to ensure you're across for race day. If you're a spectator or support crew, have a read below to make sure you're clued up come race day.

We encourage spectators to get out on course and support their runners!

Spectators can see runners at many points along the Ultra-Trail Kosciuszko by UTMB courses. We ask that you please respect private landowners and do not cross any private property. If spectating on course, please respect runners and support crews and do your best to spectate in a supportive, safe manner. Any on course spectating outside of supported checkpoints can only be moral support – no material or physical supporting is allowed.

There are sections of each course that are both accessible and inaccessible to spectators.

You can jump to some of our favourite spectator locations be clicking on the interactive map icons below.

Spectators can view runners up at various points on course. Many points are located within the NSW National Park, and will require a Parks Pass to be able to drive into and access. Any cars driving into the National Park (which the finish line and many of the CPs is inside) will need a NSW Parks Pass (day or annual), which can be purchased at Park Information Centres or at the toll gates while entering the park.
