Canberra has some of the best trails of any city in the world.
Originally staged as a 100km race to commemorate the Centenary of Canberra in 2013, this unique run is a celebration of our "Natural Capital" – part adventure, part scenic tour and part epic endurance challenge.
The journey wends through the hills, nature parks and open spaces of central, south and north Canberra, describing a wide loop starting and finishing at Rond Terrace, at the foot of Anzac Parade on Lake Burley Griffin in the Parliamentary Triangle.
Why not have it all? – this run combines the exhilarating immersion in Nature of a genuine trail race, with the convenience, safety and proximity to city services of an urban environment. Come and experience why so many runners choose to live and train in Canberra year-round.
After growing the distance by 1km each year to reach 105km in 2018, from 2019 the race reverted to the standard distance of 100km.
Runners can challenge themselves to attain the glory of completing the entire 100km solo; or else join with friends or colleagues to cover the distance in a relay team of 2 – 4 members.
