The Centennial Park Ultra in Sydney on Sunday, 6 August 2017, also known as the CP Ultra, follows a 3.54km loop for 42km, 50km or 100km, and can be run solo or as part of a team relay.
The event scheduled for on Sunday, 6 August 2017 has been cancelled, but should hopefully return in 2018.
Message from the event organisers:
The growth of CPUltra meant we no longer fit into the current Parklands 'social sports' category, but now, 'major events.' My team and I were initially excited by our new categorisation, as it would give us the opportunity to scale the event (bigger start and finishing chute, a diverse side program for families while the race is going on, and more importantly, continuing to give more value to you, our dearest participants). However, the significant increase in fee and the short time frame does not allow us to make this a viable event without increasing the entry fee or compromising our standards and safety.
What now? Great question. This certainly isn't the end for CPUltra. We want to continue to serve you, and we are committed to work with Centennial Parklands on a viable and sustainable model that will allow us to come back in 2018 for our eighth edition.
The CP Ultra course consists of a 3.54km dirt track, which runs in a loop around Centennial Park. You'll begin at McKay Oval and travel in a clockwise direction for the duration of the race. All runners must complete the marked course on foot under their own power and must stay on the marked course; shortcuts are not permitted.
