Runners from all over the world will be heading to Ayers Rock this July for a challenging marathon in the Australian outback.
A remote Australian holiday resort is set to welcome the brave runners taking part in the second annual Australian Outback Marathon this July.
Ayers Rock Resort will be supporting the event, which features Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park as the spectacular backdrop for this endurance race on July 30th.
Runners from all over the world are expected to attend, with competitors from New Zealand, England, French Polynesia, Ireland, and the USA all due to catch flights to Australia.
With a choice of half-marathon, 11km and 6km distances on offer, runners of all ability levels will find something challenging.
Furthermore, those staying at Ayers Rock Resort can enjoy guided tours of the region, including an Uluru Sunrise and Base Walk Tour, Kata Tjuta’s Valley of the Winds walk, and the Uluru Sunset trip.
Michael Walton, founder of the Australian Outback Marathon, said: “The inaugural marathon was a huge success, with participants attending from all over the world. We look forward to building on this success for 2011 and beyond.”
