If you believe you or another person could meet this criteria, you are encouraged and welcome to contact the Race Director at: ron@trueblueultra.com to discuss.

Start Location

The start location will be in the grass reserve area North of the Picnic area of the Australind Foreshore. Next to the Toilet block.

Finish Line Location

The finish location will be at the same location as the start. This area provides toilets, BBQ facilities and covered gazebos along the foreshore. There is ample competitor and spectator parking, with an adjoining carpark located 100 m South of the Start/Finish point. There is also a 24-hour Service station located 200 m South of the Start line next to the car park along with a Coles Supermarket across the road.


100 km —-Participants will require the completion of an official Marathon event (or greater) in the 12 months preceding the event in under cut-off time. Evidence may be required at the Race Directors’ discretion.

50 km  —- Event does not have any qualifying criteria.  Though this is a fully supported event with regular aid station locations,  is expected that participants will have experience at running distance events and understand the risks associated with endurance events in heat conditions.

75 km —-Participants will require the completion of an official Marathon event (or greater) in the 12 months preceding the event in under cut-off time. Evidence may be required at the Race Directors’ discretion.

25 km —- Event does not have any qualifying criteria. Runners are expected to be fit and healthy to participate.

6 km Kids event – Children will be escorted by a lead cyclist whilst running, as some sections will be on public footpaths out of view of the race organizers. There is a reasonable expectation that one or both of the parents would be running in an event on the day, to go part the way of covering the costs of the kid’s medals.

Course Measurement

As of December 2020 the course was officially remeasured. This means that records can be officially recorded. (See explanation below)

For the 2025 event, the same course will be used as per the 2024 event. Starting and finishing near the playground and gazebos.

Courses must be certified for any road running performance to be accepted as a record or to be nationally ranked.  Furthermore, running a race on a certified course allows you to accurately compare your time to performances run on other certified courses because you can be sure the distances are the same. No one can truly establish a personal best if the course distance is not accurate.

When participants enter a race advertised to be of a certain distance, they have a reasonable expectation that the distance be accurate. The certification program is very important to the average runner, as well as those of exceptional speed. Most runners like to compare performances run on different courses and such comparisons are very difficult if course distances are not reliable. No one can establish a personal best if courses are not accurate.

For any road-running performance to be accepted as a record, or be included in national or provincial rankings, it must be run on a certified course.

Lap Recording

Running works timing will be used for this event. This will incorporate a bib with a timing line attached which may be worn on any part of the body. Half-laps and full-laps will be timed and recorded.  For eg:  6.25km, 12.5km, 25.00km, 37.5km……etc
