Run Larapinta

Run Larapinta is a 4-day, 4-stage trail running race along the most spectacular sections of the iconic Larapinta Trail in Australia’s Northern Territory.

A note from the Race Director about entries selling out:

If we make runners breathless with the courses we set, then you have made us breathless with your enthusiasm to enter. There is no doubt that Run Larapinta is a special event and each year we look forward to it like a kid at Christmas and we are overawed that you feel the same way.

Why so special? – the landscape we get to experience is truly amazing… the tectonic lines of the MacDonnell Ranges merging with a distant horizon, the steep-sided gorges brought to life with waterholes at their base, the simple timelessness of the outback just seeps into your soul. But more than that, the real beauty of Run Larapinta is the people that participate. Coming from across the country and of different speeds and abilities – we are all equal out there and the sense of camaraderie between runners is truly next level. The experiences shared and the memories forged will never be forgotten. Ever.

We feel honoured to have created such an event and privileged to deliver it each year. THANK YOU for sharing our dream and the dust that comes with it. See you in August.
