The Australian Alpine Ascent Ultra trail runs feature two distances, the full 50km and the half 25km which will feature a combination of road and trail tracks. You’ll cross through locations like Charlotte Pass and Lake Albina, and Summit Mount Kosciuszko. It’s brutal, but it’s beautiful and the courses have been designed to showcase the very best of the Snowy Mountains along the way.


run 25km

The start in Charlotte Pass Village means that you hit your first substantial hill in the first couple of hundred meters. Once you have blown out the cobwebs with that nasty bit of geography,, there is some gentle uphill until you reach the end of the road at Charlotte Pass. It is then onto the Main Range Track where there is a steep downhill to the Snowy River. A rock hop is required to get across the Snowy River at this point. This is followed by a steep uphill which takes you past the turnoff to Blue Lake, and many more undulations as you traverse the ridge line before passing the beautiful Lake Albina on your right. After Lake Albina, there is a steady climb up to the junction with the Summit Track. You turn right to head up the Summit track to the top of Kosciuszko. At this point when the event marshal tells you 'it's all downhill from here!', they aren't actually lying! Give yourself some time to take in the 360 degree views on the rooftop of Australia before starting your big descent. You pass a water only aid station at Rawson Pass on your way back down the mountain. Continue down this track, past Seaman's Hut, to cross the Snowy River again at a different point than before. There is a small gentle uphill, before more downhill, all the way into the finish line in Charlotte Pass Village.
