UTA Gear Check Canberra

UTA Gear Check Canberra

Ultra-Trail Australia (UTA) is only three weeks away! Hopefully, your training is going well, and you're getting excited to start tapering, but that doesn't mean the hard work is over.

Mandatory Gear. Have you got it race-ready? If not, don't worry, there's still time, and we have all the gear to get you across the start line: clothing, bandages, hydration and nutrition, as well as Canberra's most extensive range of trail running shoes and vests!

The Mont Shop is the only registered UTA Gear Check Store in Canberra. Anyone running the 100km, bring your gear in, pick up anything else you need, and one of our expert staff will check and issue you a certificate for race check-in. If you're tackling the 50km, 22km or 11km races, don't hesitate to do the same to clear up any questions or uncertainties you might have.

Sometimes getting all your mandatory gear together can seem daunting, and you might even question why you need to carry so much. It’s important to know that race organisers select the required gear based on what they believe is the bare minimum to keep you safe on a particular course. Trail runs are often remote and on challenging terrain with variable weather systems, so carrying this gear is essential for several reasons: Your safety, the safety of other runners, the safety of race officials, and not to mention not having required gear risks time penalties!

Below is a basic list of the Mandatory gear required for UTA100. Please check the UTA website for more detailed information about each item or gear required for other distances as it may differ:

To ensure you see the most up-to-date information please refer to the mandatory gear page on the UTA website: https://www.ultratrailaustralia.com.au/athlete-info/mandatory-gear/

Mont has an exceptional range of all things trail running so even if UTA is not your event or you are just starting out, we have the gear and knowledge to help get you out on the trails!

Australian longicorn borers are known worldwide for their ability to aggressively infest eucalypt plantations. In Australia, too, longicorn outbreaks have struck plantations in Tasmania, Victoria and Queensland. By contrast, outbreaks of longicorns are rare in native eucalypt forests. Why? Well, it’s not clear, but the current theory is that to be successful, longicorn populations must develop in forests that are persistently drought-stressed. In plantations, a single species is often planted over a varying landscape that is, in some cases, too dry. Native eucalypt forests, however, generally comprise numerous species leading to a patterned landscape of species that is more resilient to stress.

Over the last couple of days I have had a couple of short forays into Mount Field National Park. This magnificent park has landscapes that range from temperate rainforest with beautiful waterfalls to extensive alpine areas with some stunning mountain topography. Mount Field National Park, along with Freycinet National Park, were both declared national parks in 1916, making them the oldest national parks in Tasmania.
