Ultra-Trail Australia is about more than just those lining up on the start line. Friends, family and support crew are all integral to the magical atmosphere and vibe across all 4 days of the event.

Runners will know that there is nothing quite like the energy you get from a random high-five or hearing someone shout your name. Cow-bells are even better!
