Yaberoo Trail Ultra is a running event that takes place on the Yaberoo Budjara Heritage Trail, a beautiful bushland in the heart of Perth's northern suburbs.
The Whadjuk peoples have used this corridor of land for tens of thousands of years. Yaberoo Budjara translates to 'Land of the peoples North of Perth' and to have an event that runs along this trail is an opportunity for us to acknowledge the history of the region and our country’s first peoples.
Race distances of 15km, 25k, 50k and kids 5km and 10km are available to immerse runners in the beautiful coastal bush lands along the limestone trail. Generous no cut off times are perfect for those wanting to accomplish their first trail running experience.
- Entry Process: There is a maximum of 300 entrants across all three distances (not including the kids race). A wait list will be put in place should the event sell out. Entries close on Sunday 29 November 2020.
- Qualification: As the event is run on a groomed track with relatively good access and close proximity, there are no qualification requirements for any of the distances. Trail experience is recommended and a general good level of fitness as per rules and conditions is expected. The generous no cut off times are perfect for those wanting to accomplish their first trail running experience.
- Volunteer: The Yaberoo Trail Ultra relies on team of volunteers to make the race happen. If you would like to help out at on Sunday 6 December as a volunteer instead of as a runner, please complete the volunteer registration: http://yaberootrailultra.com.au/volunteers-2/

Yaberoo Budjara Heritage Trail
This 28 kilometre one way trail is based on the movement of Yellagonga and his people between Lake Joondalup and Yanchep. It can be completed in sections. It extends from Neil Hawkins Park in the south to Yanchep National Park in the north, traversing tuart and banksia woodland, coastal heath and former wetlands.
Yellagonga was an Aborigine whose tribe stretched from the Moore River to the Swan River. The Aborigines used the chain of wetlands to move away from the coast in winter, returning to the lakes in summer as the inland water supplies dried up. This route was later used as a stock route by Europeans. Yaberoo Budjara is translated as "the land of the people north of Perth". The trail surface has been upgraded to crushed limestone. It has red markers with a grasstree symbol and can be accessed in sections.
