The King of the Mtns is the longest continuous trail run through the Blue Mountains National Park. Climbing 2.3x the height of Mt Everest, over 505KM of single trail, fire trail, & sometimes no trail at all.

Run during the week following the Winter Solstice. The King of the Mtns tests the spirit of challengers. Through the coldest & darkest days, of the notoriously cold, dark, & windy Blue Mountains.

The King of the Mtns is a challenge. It calls those who seek adventure through suffering. It promises to test spirit against sandstone.  It asks who of the many, will walk the path of the few?

Race applications are open for 2025, register your interest below. Entries limited.


The route is set, The Mountains lay waiting. One question remains.
