A MESSAGE OF THANKS
We would like to show gratitude and respect to the Gundungurra nation, the traditional custodians of the land that is travelled by runners in Ultra-Trail Australia. Through this collaboration, all UTA runners have the privilege of experiencing some of the most spectacular landscapes Australia has to offer. We have no doubt this experience instils, and grows a desire, to nurture and protect this amazing Country for future generations and we are committed to working in genuine partnership with the Aboriginal community.
We would like to acknowledge Gundungurra Elder Uncle David King in particular for playing such a crucial role in consulting with and educating our event team and the wider UTA community on the country and culture of the place we are fortunate enough to journey through.
We would also like to recognise and thank the private landholders that kindly grant us access to the trails passing through their properties. We are very grateful for all of the collaborative partnerships we have developed, the cooperation and support found in these relationships has truly allowed Ultra-Trail Australia to develop the most amazing course possible.
