Ultra-Trail Australia by UTMB is about more than just those lining up on the start line. Friends, family and support crew are all integral to the magical atmosphere and vibe across all 4 days of the event.
ON COURSE VIEWING
We ask that Spectators looking to watch their Runners on course at any time during the race respect road rules and do so in a safe manner. Spectators may cheer on runners but not assist them in any way. See Support Crew section for where assistance is able to be provided.
Your family and friends will be able to join you as soon as you enter the Scenic World precinct and can accompany you through the finish chute. Although family and friends won't be able to join you in the recovery zone. You will be able to meet them for your post-race celebrations after your runner has exited recovery, and you will be able to go with them to collect their drop bags.
SUPPORT CREW ASSISTANCE
Support crew refers to those assisting runners by providing nutrition and hydration support, and with dressing blisters or massage etc.
Runners may only receive support crew assistance at the designated checkpoints, and only for the UTA100.
Runners in the UTA50, UTA22 and UTA11 may not have support crew support, just spectators.
UTA100 support crew are able to assist runners within 200m either side of the Checkpoint location. We ask that crew follow the instructions of volunteers and event crew to respect other runners and crews trying to assist in the same area.
Outside of these checkpoints, support crew cannot assist their runner in any form other than with verbal assistance (aka cheering). This includes but is not limited to nutrition and hydration support, passing of any items including food and gear, and any form of pacing.

We encourage spectators to get out on course and support their runners!
Spectators can see runners at many points along the Ultra-Trail Australia by UTMB courses. We ask that you please respect private landowners and do not cross any private property. If spectating on course, please respect runners and support crews and do your best to spectate in a supportive, safe manner. Any on course spectating outside of supported checkpoints can only be moral support – no material or physical supporting is allowed.
There are sections of each course that are both accessible and inaccessible to spectators.
