80KM in a rich tapestry of natural wonderland awaits


The Margarat River Ultramarathon is nearly here... May the 4th be with you!

Yep... your big 80KM solo or team pursuit is going to hurt on Saturday. But don't worry, that runners high you get afterward is going to make it all worthwhile!

Not to mention the after party at the Cheeky Monkey Brewery and the chance to run in some of Australia's most pristine landscape. 

A quick note...

Don't forget ONLINE ENTRIES close 30 April at 8AM AEST (yep that's tomorrow). No adjustments to team entries can be made after this cutoff so make sure your team is sorted. 

And make sure you get your very own copy of the official 2019 Event Program if you haven't already.

We've included some other items below, PLUS, some details on a special competition we're running.

Good luck and we can't wait to see you all on the weekend!

Event program

The Event Program contains all the final event information like schedule, course maps, check points, race rules, and more. This is ESSENTIAL reading for competitors so make yourself a coffee brew and have a read :)


Racer briefing and runners menu

Our superb finish line hosts—the Cheeky Monkey Brewery—have prepared a delicious menu to fuel you up on Friday evening before the big day.  
The race briefing kicks off at 6.30PM and will be streamed live on the Rapid Ultra Facebook page. We'd love to see you there if you can make it!

Have you got your gear sorted?

We look forward to seeing some proper swag at Cheeky Monkey before the start of the 80KM solo and team events. There's no prizes for the coolest runners with the coolest gear but it helps to be prepared. 

PLEASE NOTE: We have a mandatory gear list and a recommended gear list so make sure you have these items covered before the hammer falls on Saturday.

Have you booked the bus?

Don't forget to BOOK THE BUS from the Cheeky Monkey Brewery down to Hamelin Bay to the start line if you need to do so (NOTE: This is not mandatory but highly recommended to save congestion on the roads).

You don't want to be running the course twice back to your car either!

May the 4th be with you

Since it'll be May the 4th, we've decided to run a little Star Wars theme on the day of the event!

We'll be giving away prizes to the best dressed Storm Troopers, Yodas, Darth Vaders, Luke Skywalkers, Princess Leias... you get it :)
