Australia’s #1 Ultra-Running Website

Our Goal

Ultra168 is a group of Sydney-based ultra marathon runners who share a passion for running on trails, as well as reporting on what’s happening in the world of trail and ultra running in general.

First and foremost, we all enjoy running for what it is. Mates that get together on a Saturday, and who enjoy running through some of the most amazing scenery in Australia. If there’s something you’d like to see featured on this website, drop us a line and we’ll have a chat.

Our aim is to make this website one of Australia’s best resources for trail and ultra running. Be it advice for running your first ultra marathon, through to insights from some of the World’s leading runners, as well as what training we’re up to each week. We want Ultra168 to be your first port of call for all things to do with Australian ultra running.

Race Directors and those involved with running

If you have a story, or you’d like us to report on an event, please do get in touch with us on the email address below. Whilst we know about quite a lot of the events that are going on in and around Australia, we don’t know about them all, so we’d encourage race directors and others to drop us a note with information and results too.

Manufacturers and Distributors

If you have gear that you’d like us to review, again get in touch on the email address below and we can arrange to receive any gear that you’d like us to look at and review. We’re all very experienced trail runners and we give all our gear a thorough testing over many hundreds of kilometres on the trails week in and week out. We’ll find out if it’s unbreakable or not! We’re not governed by advertising and we remain impartial for all our reviews. If it’s great we’ll tell you. If it’s not, we’ll say why. As per our rules, and where possible all gear sent to us will be returned if appropriate to ensure impartiality for reviews.

Sponsorship opportunities

If you’d like to chat to us with regards to a sponsorship opportunity, again, email us on the address below. We have a number of existing arrangements and we’re always open to listening to what people have to say. When we work with companies, we do so because we 100% believe in their products – we don’t believe in being paid to say something about a company or product. For us, it has to work, and has to work for our readers too.

Cheers,

Andrew, Dan, Darrel & Marcus (ultra168@hotmail.com)

I'm a mediocre runner who can bat above his average when I train hard. A man of extremes, I do enjoy everything life offers and consider it an absolute pleasure just to be able to put one foot in front of the other and let my mind wander somewhere different.
