Hubert 100

Hubert 100 Logo

May 4-5 2019

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

Wadna logo

In 2019 we're delighted to continue our relationship with Kristian Coulthard (from Wadna Yura), an Adnyamathnaha 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 that will feature throughout the Hubert 100. We urge you to check him out on Facebook and Instagram.
