UTA is surely a bucket list event for every trail runner. Epic single track, stunning views, a rich cultural history, a few sets of stairs, endless and punishing descents, what more do you need? Strength. Pure, simple, time-efficient, proven strength. Training for this beast is going to require some sacrifices, lots of dedication, plenty of support from SQUADRUN, and perhaps the occasional visit to Fix Physio in Sydney or Gold Coast Physio for our Qld friends just to keep you on track.


Gym Phase 2 - Progression

Strength Requirements Right here

I would recommend at least 2 weeks of the Phase 1 program before attempting the strength tests for phase 2. Phase 1 has lots of exercises to help remind you of correct strength training technique and a couple of weeks of these foundational exercises will help make sure there is no excessive soreness when you leap into phase 2. When you are feeling strong, test your strength progress for access to Phase 3.
