The Course and Maps

Looking for one compelling reason to enter WildEndurance? The route!

The route is what sets WildEndurance apart from any other team challenge. It's wild and tough but ensures you and your team will see some of the most awesome views in the Blue Mountains. So come and test your fitness and stamina in the stunning and iconic wilderness of a World Heritage gem.

The 50km route covers leg 1 and 2 of the 100km route plus an additional 2km on leg 1.

Course Map Overview 2014

The Route starts in beautiful Megalong Valley, takes you up on to the Narrowneck ridge, under the magnificent Katoomba cliffs and around the Three Sisters, through the wonderful Jamison valley, along the Andersons and Ingar trails, over Wentworth Falls and Lilians Bridge, past The Pool of Siloam and along Prince Henry Cliff Walk to the Finish at Katoomba Oval.

The route is challenging and exhilarating. With training, any reasonably healthy person can complete the event and you are guaranteed a memorable experience. One of the WildEndurance veterans, Tegan Angel, created this video of his team, WildPlans, completing the course. It's a great overview of what to expect. You can check it out here.
