Australian Outback Marathon and Half Marathon
July 27, 2013
We are very pleased to return to the 2013 Australian Outback Marathon, Half Marathon, 11K and 6K on July 27, 2013 at Ayers Rock (Uluru to the aborigines). We have developed some exciting travel packages and itineraries and are working closely in conjunction with the race creators and organizers who are based in Australia.
Located in the very heart of the country, this truly unique event will have the majestic Ayers Rock as its backdrop and will give runners of all levels the opportunity to experience the Australian Outback as its earliest inhabitants once did, on foot.
As an officially-appointed travel representative in North America, we offer packages to suit all tastes and budgets, the Australian Outback Marathon (half marathon, 11K run/walk and 6K run/walk) is a must for all who love running, adventure and who have wanted to explore the stunning Australian outback.
Drawing on our experience at the Outback Marathon in 2010, 2011, and 2012 races we have put together a few itineraries to choose from. We highly recommend the Diamond Itinerary, a 4-night package that allows time to experience the unique culture of the area and the landscape of Ayers Rock in addition to participation in the events surrounding the race. The Platinum Itinerary is a 5-night package offering more time in the Outback, but could possibly limit time spent traveling the rest of the continent. Travelers choosing the Gold Itinerary would arrive the afternoon before the marathon and travelers choosing the Silver Itinerary would depart the day after the marathon. Please note these itineraries leave little time for any travel delays that could occur, any opportunity to really explore the Outback, as well as an inability to attend the Celebration Dinner for some guests.
With limited flight service in and out of Ayers Rock, the Diamond Itinerary provides the perfect balance of price, Outback experience and rest before race day. Australia is a long way to travel for an event and we want to ensure we get you to the start line.
We recommend the Diamond Itinerary for the marathon and joining us on our customized 3-night pre-trip in Sydney and our 4-night post-marathon package to Port Douglas to explore the Great Barrier Reef. Visit our packages and options pages to learn about our discounted packages to Sydney and Port Douglas as well as discounted flights out of Los Angeles.
