Event description

Description

This is the NRG launch and information night for the 2018 Sixfoot Track race. NRG has had long association with Sixfoot Track and this event will provide runners with all of the information that they need to successfully prepare for the race. This is the opportunity to share in the Sixfoot Track Race exprerience and have the support of NRG runners from elite level to novices.

The Sixfoot Track race has been described as "the toughest marathon in Australia, if not the world" and is held each March in the Blue Mountains, Katoomba, NSW. With more than 25 years of experience under its belt, this is the premier trail Marathon in Australia, and it is expected that the full quota of 850 runners will start each year's event. The runners will run along the Six Foot Track, a bridle trail originally cut in 1884 starting from the Historic "Marked Tree" at Katoomba to the Jenolan Caves, a distance of 45 kms. The gruelling race was launched in March 1984 to mark the centenary of the opening of this historic track. Since the first race, which fielded a mere seven runners, the event has attracted much acclaim for its toughness, its stunning scenery, challenging conditions and great camaraderie.
