takayna Ultra - registrations closed

Join our inaugural 65km ultra-marathon event and help save takayna / Tarkine from logging, mining and off-road vehicle damage.

Just announced as a sister race to the Ultra, the takayna22 shares a section of the same route along this magnificent wild coastline.

This event will raise money to support our campaign to have takayna / Tarkine protected as a World Heritage listed National Park, returned to Aboriginal ownership.

This run will traverse grass plains, amazing sands tracks along rugged wild coastlines and bush tracks. 



Starting beside the dark brown buttongrass tannin-stained Nelson Bay River, the run immerses you immediately in rolling native grass plains and stands of dry eucalypt forest. Open beaches, dunes, and impressive low rocky sections, and more dark rivers and creeks to cross, are dispersed occasionally with fishing shack settlements and extensive Aboriginal heritage. Traversing complex coastal country and a stand of remnant old growth forest adjacent to the Arthur River, this run takes you across wild takayna – an experience you will never forget.

Places are strictly limited to 100 runners for the takayna Ultra and 40 for the takayna22.

Registrations closed on 15 March.

    This has excited my imagination. Next will be judging the gap between imagining and the reality of details!
