Elite Energy
AAA 50K *SOLD OUT*

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 Perisher and Charlotte Pass 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.

Update: We’ve reached capacity for current NSW Health orders for the 50km event. Sign up here and we’ll let you know when there’s a spot available for you.

run 50km

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, there is 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 before passing the beautiful Lake Albina. 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. This heralds a whole lot of lovely downhill, and 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 gentle uphill, before more downhill, all the way into the comprehensive aid station at the turnaround in Charlotte Pass Village. Then it is time to do that all again (consensus shows that the second lap is less pleasant and the runners aren't loving life as much as they were in the first lap), except second time around, you don't make the right hand turn onto the Summit track to summit Kosi. You turn left with the knowledge that is pretty well is downhill all the way to the finish line.
