The August 2022 edition of the Run Larapinta Stage Race has SOLD OUT – 3hrs after entries opened. Entries to the April edition are also filling fast with just 75 slots remaining. We encourage anyone seeking an exceptional run in the Red Centre to sign up for April ASAP before it too fills up. Run Larapinta has sold out before but normally takes a few months, so we have been overwhelmed by the support for the 2022 races and can’t wait to welcome runners to the event next year. Live your dreams – see you in the Red Centre.
