The iconic Larapinta Trail, in the West McDonnell Ranges in Australia’s Red Centre is definitely a bucket list hiking destination for thousands of people around the world each year. Now ultra runners will have the opportunity to test themselves on 231km of spectacular single track in a full length end to end, supported, non-stop ultra race event being organised by the Alice Springs Running and Walking Club (ASRWC).

A new end to end record was set at the 2019 event by Perth runner Shane Johnstone. An amazing time of 40 hours 55 minutes and 18 seconds blitzed the previous record by nearly 18 hours.
