UTA22 is a challenging and super-fun loop course that takes in all the beauty of the Blue Mountains but is still achievable for those newbies to trail running.
Your start is at KCC Oval, across the road from Scenic World. The route takes you along UTA course highlights like the famous Golden Stairs, Federal Pass, Three Sisters, Leura Cascades, Elysian Rock and Prince Henry Cliff Walk, before heading up the Furber Steps to your finish line at Scenic World.
Whether you're new to trail running or looking to take in some of the UTA highlights without going ultra distance - the UTA22 is perfect for you!
