takayna Ultra 2020 Wrap-up

On Friday 13th, 150 runners tackled takayna’s wilderness, running 65km or 22km through beautiful grasslands and magical coastline. The Ultra runners kicked off in the dark at 6am and were met at midday by wild weather, while our takayna 22 runners enjoyed the company of the gale force wind and rain for their entire run!

Despite the wild weather, the event was a resounding success, raising over $170,000 (and counting!) We also had the pleasure of being joined by Paddy Pallin staff and Patagonia ambassador Majell Backhausen.


Approximately 360 volunteer hours were contributed towards making the event a resounding success, and we are so thankful to those who made their way to Marrawah to assist in the kitchen, on the field, and at aid stations.

We are so grateful to everyone who j
oined us – runners, sponsors, volunteers and donors – and we look forward to seeing you all again next year!
