We're headed back to Scenic World for our start lines and finish line for 2024. Scenic World has been home to so many iconic UTA memories, and we can't wait to create many more at this years UTA. Here's what you can expect:
For the UTA100 and UTA50, your start line will return to being under the big finish arch. We will flow you into chute as you line up pre-start, before then heading out through recovery, turning right and then left onto Cliff Drive.
For the UTA22 and UTA11 - runners are so speedy that there will be finishers in these distances before all runners have even started, which means we will have a separate start line set up for you, as shown on the map. You'll roll straight out and left onto Cliff Drive.
The finish line will be in a slightly different location to previous Scenic World finish lines, however runners will still make their way right to the top of Furber Steps, along the boardwalk, past the entrance to Scenic World, through the hoards of cheering spectators, and underneath the finish arch. There's more opportunity for high-fives and pictures, for you to soak up the emotion of your amazing achievement. Remember, you can have friends and family join you in the finish chute - they'll be able to do so just next to the Scenic World entrance. Please be courteous to other finishers - this is their moment too!
After you cross the finish line and have your medal placed around your neck, you'll flow through recovery - with food and beverage options for you to peruse, as well as medical on hand. When you're ready, you can exit recovery and join your friends and family, kick back and cheer on other runners.
Finish line drop bags will be located in the newly re-furbished CMS, to the south of the venue. Massage can also be found here.
Food & Drink
A range of Food Vendors will be operating within the venue, in case you're feeling peckish. All of these are local vendors from the Blue Mountains region.
A bar will be operating, on the north side of the finish chute. You can crack a cold one and cheer on runners, but please only do so within the licensed area.
Pick yourself up some sweet merch to commemorate your finish, and even get your medal engraved at the merch tent.
Scenic World Event Lounge
If you've got crew hanging around waiting for you to finish (especially during the early hours when it gets nippy) send them into the Scenic World Event Lounge, where there will be a live feed of the finish line, and food and drink available.
