Fulfil your bucket list! Entries have become available for the 2021 Run Larapinta Stage Race to be held between 26 – 29 August in Alice Springs.

Due to NSW’s very unfortunate lockdown, 82 runners have been forced to withdraw from this otherwise sold-out event (we are shattered you can’t join us ☹). This has created opportunities for other runners to experience this amazing event this year.

With central accommodation and easy race logistics it’s not too hard to seize this entry opportunity – read the website or contact us for more details.

Can't believe you have cancelled our entries from regional NSW without any consultation. NT lockdown only occurred yesterday and it is quite possible that lockdown will be lifted before Larapinta goes ahead. Very poor form by Rapid Ascent when we got an email last week saying that no decision would be made before 17th August.

That is not strictly correct...we haven't withdrawn as yet & live in regional NSW. This decision was made on our behalf without consultation or direct notification to NSW participants. If NT changes or revokes its stance on regional NSW being a hotspot, where do we stand? Very poor communication by Rapid Ascent...

Really? Have you automatically withdrawn 82 NSW runners without consultation? There is a slim chance NSW regional restrictions may be lifted in the next 3 weeks. Maybe an email would have been appropriate.

We can race again!! YIPPEE!! The easing of lockdown means that race #3 of the Trail Running Series can proceed on 8th August at the seaside township of Anglesea.

We’re still confirming the exact race format – likely to be mass starts but with other COVID-safe measures – but the race courses will be unchanged with 8km, 14km and 22km options through the scenic coastal hinterland AND our new ‘Friendly 4km’ for kids and other first timers.

So shout yourself a trip to the coast and freshen up some ocean air!

Great news for Otway Odyssey riders - works have begun on 38km of new single track and reshaping existing trails in Forrest!!

These works will revitalise the network and help re-establish it as a world-class riding destination.

We're hopeful that we can include some new trails in the 2022 Otway Odyssey MTB Marathon - set to take place on 26-27 February next year. (Entries open late September).

Good that Forrest gets new trails. But hopefully they're not going to replace all the hand cut singletrack with 2m wide flow trails. Variety is best! These commercially built tracks can be a bit formulaic.

Looks awesome! I’ll be back to Forrest soon!

There is a tree root on a tight right uphill turn ,always gets me please remove

Scott Bowman maybe we get the chance to make up for last year mate 🤞

We can all learn so much from these wise words - not just for future sporting performances but also for life in general.

Don't stress about what you can't control...
