May 2-3 2020

100 miles · 100 km · 50 km · 42.2 km

Follow in Sir Hubert Wilkins’ footsteps as you run your way over the Pound wall, across ancient lake beds, through rocky valleys, and along grassy trails in the shadows of the Ranges.

All of the races will take in the best the Ranges has to offer by foot, and will most definitely fill you with awe at least once! The history of the area is easy to see as it is evident everywhere. Join us in appreciating the bond that the Adnyamathanha people have had with this land for thousands of years, and be taken in by the Welcome To Country ceremony at Wilpena Pound Resort on the Friday evening.

The daytime average temperature in May is 20 degrees, nights cool down to around 7 degrees.

We offer a choice of race distances: 42.2 km, 50 km, 100 km and the famous 100 miler. Please note that the 100 mile race has qualifying standards:

  • completion of at least one trail ultra marathon of 100 km or more in the preceding 18 months, or;
  • completion of an endurance event lasting more than eight hours (such as an Ironman triathlon, or 24 Hour Rogaine).

The Race Director will consider all applications, but their decision will be final.

All runners must be 18 years of age or older on the start date of the race. Ambulance cover is mandatory for all runners and buddy runners.

Buddy runners are only permitted in the 100 mile and 100 km events. They are not permitted to start accompanying prior to:

  • Aroona Ruins (100 mile event - either direction)
  • Trezona Campground (100 km event)

Registration for buddy runners to be advised.

The event is also held in partnership with the Friends of the Heysen Trail, who do a magnificent job maintaining the trail from end to end.

We hope to see you out at the Hubert in May!

Huge thanks to all the...team!!! What an epic weekend in such an amazing place! Loved it!

Luke M.

Such a testament to you...for putting on what I believe is one very special and unique event in a world class area. I was so privileged to be able to be apart of your race and to do it proud

They had slow cookers going, hot drinks, campfire, recliners, party lights leading the way there, and a charging station to charge your watch and phone!

Katie M.

A very big special mention and thanks for the volunteers within the SA running fraternity. Without you, these events do not happen. Over the duration of my 32+ hours on this course, it was so heart warming to reach these check points that were staffed with such happy, helpfull and caring souls.

Wadna logo

In 2019 we're delighted to continue our relationship with Kristian Coulthard (from Wadna Yura), an Adnyamathanha man from the Flinders Rangers. He is a much sought after tour guide and an exceptional artist. We have commissioned him to produce this year's trophies and a painting (Wandu Ngarndika) that will feature throughout the Hubert 100. We urge you to check him out on Facebook and Instagram.

We acknowledge and respect the traditional custodians whose ancestral lands we are meeting upon during our event. We acknowledge the deep feelings of attachment and relationship of Aboriginal peoples to Country. We also pay respects to the cultural authority of Aboriginal peoples visiting / attending from other areas of South Australia / Australia present here.

Aroona Ruins ('Temptation Station') - 100 mile and 100km runners:

Quinten and Al from In The Flinders run the aid station at Aroona Ruins. They affectionately name it 'Temptation Station'. This is what they have in store for you in 2019...

This year Temptation Station will have:

  • a dedicated camping space for buddy runners and crews. We have already pre-booked campsite #4 which is where we had the aid station for the last two years. This year we have also booked campsite #8 (see map below). Last year we had a few pacers and support crew sleep nearby or at our station, so we thought that this year we would offer some better options for them. We will bring an extra gazebo for campsite #8 which we will setup with 4 camp beds. Pacers or support crew will be welcome to use this camp area (on a first-come, first-serve basis) as required. To further help the pacers/support crews, we will love to offer them wake-up calls or alerts when their runner comes through.
  • power available, which we will use to provide various comforts for participants including lighting, and cooking facilities. Support crew will be welcome to make use of the urn and hotplate for preparing food/drinks etc. if runners do not want to eat from the aid station supplies.
  • hot water (including tea/coffee facilities) along with hot soup (stew and a vegan option) and fresh hot damper, as well as all the regular aid station supplies. There will also be a special tasty treat for all runners that make it to the station, but you need to make it there to find out what it is!
  • a charging station for people's devices. There will be plenty of powered USB outlets and runners will just need to ensure they have the appropriate USB cable with them (or placed in their drop bag).
  • a dedicated drop bag tent with a large bench space for people to grab supplies and gear etc.
  • a privacy tent next to the drop bags for runners to change in etc.
  • a huge 120L Esky filled with ice so that runners can store perishables in addition to their regular drop bags. We'll collect and store these perishables at the same time as we collect the drop bags. Runners should provide their perishables in a plastic bag marked with their name (alongside their drop bag) and we'll ensure they are kept cool until needed.
  • two gazebos for runners and visitors/crews etc. to shelter in if they want to get out of the weather.
  • a fire, arm chairs, music, soft lightning and a home away from home atmosphere. We welcome anyone to come along and stay a while; you can help us cheer runners in throughout the event. The stipulation being that people must bring their happy. You bring your happy, and we'll supply the lighting, music and a party atmosphere all night!

We’re looking forward to it!

Cheers,
