6 Foot Track Marathon- Katoomba NSW  
What has been described as "the toughest marathon in Australia, if not the world" is held each March in the Blue Mountains, Katoomba, NSW. With more than 25 years of experience under its belt, this is the premier trail Marathon in Australia, and it is expected that 850 runners will start each year's event. The runners will run along the Six Foot Track, a bridle trail originally cut in 1884 starting from the Historic "Marked Tree" at Katoomba to the Jenolan Caves, a distance of 45 kms.
Entrants are given 7 hours to finish the marathon with the average runner taking 5hrs 30 mins or more. The fastest time the gruelling endurance course was clocked at just 3 hours 23 mins 13 seconds in 2008.
