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 developed two specific training programs,  a base plan and a race 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 Base and Strength Training Plan which will help you to develop endurance and strength, followed by a UTA Race Specific Training Block where you gradually increase volume, elevation and intensity.

Our UTA Base Program is 12 weeks long and our UTA Race-Specific Program is 16 weeks long.  Both are specifically designed to help you achieve your UTA 2020 personal best.

Join UTA Base + Race Training Plan and Train Smart All The Way Till Race Day with a free bonus 4 weeks training.

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

Kristy Wernowski, UTA 50

With Mark’s coaching, plus his strength and conditioning classes, and network of expert professionals, I am now better conditioned and stronger than ever. I continue to knock significant times over my PB’s and increasing my distances. In 2019, I completed GOW100 and UTA100.  I now am better educated about my training, nutrition, heart rates and performance as well as hydration needs and sodium loss rates.

Shane Smedley, UTA 100km


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.
