Your UTA Weekly Program Will Guide You On How To Build A Strong Race Body... And Remain Injury Free
The Ultra Trail Australia is one of the largest trail events in the world! The scenery, trails and atmosphere are simple incredible. Training for an event like the UTA can be challenging and exciting.
To help you train smart all the way to race day, we have created race specific plan, for each distance in this epic event.
Runners often enter the UTA, get over-excited, train too hard, get injured or peak too early. To avoid over doing it ... or under doing it, the best way to approach your training is with a UTA Race Specific Training Block where you gradually increase volume, elevation and intensity.

TRAINING IN MOUNT ISA FOR THE UTA IS DIFFICULT. THE TRAINING PLAN GOT ME THERE
Thank you for the awesome program, without it I don’t think I would have been able to cope with what the UTA50 throws at you!! It was hard to mimic some of the sessions in Mount Isa due to the lack of hills but I got there!! I even achieved my goal of under 10hrs with 9hrs and 34min

I SURPRISED MYSELF COMING IN 16TH FEMALE AT UTA PACE22
Thanks Mark so much for your guidance throughout the last three months.
Because of the training, I just ran and enjoyed the scenery and didn’t overthink anything. The bonus was that I surprised myself on my second trail race ever placing 16th female and a time of 2hrs 25mins in the 22 course.
