Your Red Earth Itinerary


  • Friday 25th July 2014
    • Today is your arrival day at Yulara and the Ayers Rock Resort. You will be met at the airport by a member of the Travelling Fit team and escorted to your hotel on one of the complimentary Airport Shuttles which will drop you off right at the door of your hotel.

      Once you arrive you will be guided to our dedicated check-in area where you will get your room key as well as your race registration pack that will contain, amongst other things, your race bib and exclusive Australian Outback Marathon Coolmax running top.

      Depending on when you arrive, there is plenty of time to relax by the pool, explore the resort or simply head to the Town Square for a bite to eat and a little souvenir shopping.

      At 4:00pm there will be the opportunity to purchase your very own limited edition Australian Outback Marathon merchandise and you will also be able to change your chosen event, should you wish to. Both of these activities will take place beside the Amphitheatre near the Sails in the Desert Hotel, followed by the Australian Outback Marathon Opening Ceremony and Race Briefing starting at 5:00pm.

      Note: the Opening Ceremony and Race Briefing are mandatory as there will be a safety briefing at this time and it is also our last opportunity to pass along any additional information prior to the race itself.

      At 6:00pm the traditional Carbo Load dinner will commence where you will get plenty of opportunity to mingle with your fellow competitors and also to fully “carbo load” should you wish to.

      Included Meals:

      Dinner

  • Saturday 26th July 2014
    • TODAY IS THE DAY!

      You will need to get up bright and early today but for those with a healthy appetite a full breakfast will be served from 5:00am at your hotel (not included on the "no accommodation" package). Our private fleet of coaches will pick you up from the lobby of your hotel at 6:45am to take you to the race start so please don’t be late!

      Note: it can get very cold in the mornings in the Australian Outback so please be sure to bring something warm to wear prior to the race start.

      Sunrise is approximately 7:30am and this is another excellent opportunity to see the first rays of the sun splash across the mighty Uluru which forms the back-drop of the start/finish area. Toilets will be provided for those needing to quell those last minute nerves and at 7:45am the Australian Outback Marathon (and Half-Marathon) will begin. For those participating in the 11km Fun Run and the 6km Fun Run, your start time will be 8:00am.

      There will be plenty of tables and chairs at the start/finish area and we will also be providing fruit, an assortment of sandwiches, muffins and drinks as well as delicious hot soup for you once you have completed the race. All competitors are encouraged to stay and cheer in your fellow runners but for those that wish to leave once your race has been completed there will be a shuttle bus circulating all day between the finishing area and the resort. You may want to head on back, have a shower and then return to the finishing line to cheer on the last runners as they complete their journey.
