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.
