Thank You! 
"A soul changing race!"

Yes, one competitor described the Margaret River Ultra in these exact words.... 

It's an apt description and truly flattering. And early feedback suggests the Margaret River Ultra Marathon was bigger and badder than the debut 2018 edition.

Wild winds and occasional rain didn't help on the day. But we extend a big congratulations to all solo and team runners who guts'd it out and made it to the finish line on Saturday!

Please tell us what you thought

We'd love to get your feedback on this years event. If you have time, please take a couple of minutes to complete the Margaret River Ultra Marathon 2019 competitor survey.

Go in the draw to WIN an entry to next year's event!
