Sea to summit
Date: 18th AUGUST 2019
Distance: 42 kilometres
Elevation: 1,424 metres
Stay in the quaint township of Melrose and catch our bus to the start line, before completing a gruelling run through the lesser known parts of Mt Remarkable National Park.
This trail marathon will take you from the waters of the Spencer Gulf to the township of Melrose via the summit of Mt Remarkable.
Open to confident runners, the 8 hrs cutoff sounds generous until you encounter the unrelenting climbs. Comprised of 53% climbing, 32% descending and 14% flat sections, this is going to be one of your toughest trail marathons!
Along the way you’ll be able to replenish your energy at 4 aid stations, but remember to bring a container as we are a cupless event!
