West Macs Monster is the most exciting event on the Larapinta Trail in Central Australia.

The iconic Larapinta Trail, in the West McDonnell Ranges in Australia’s Red Centre is definitely a bucket list hiking destination for thousands of people around the world each year. Now ultra runners will have the opportunity to test themselves on 231km of spectacular single track in a full length end to end, supported, non-stop extreme ultra race event being organised by the Alice Springs Running and Walking Club (ASRWC).

A new end to end record was set at the 2023 event by local Alice Springs runner Simon Duke. 39 hours 56 minutes 26 seconds. This sub 40 hours record is astonishing given the terrain. Also in 2023, a new Female record was set by Perth runner Meghann Coffey. 47 hours 11 minutes and 38 seconds is the time to beat!

The 2025 event is on May 16th, 17th & 18th May.

Registrations for 2025 open on October 1st, 2024

As well as the full length 231km ultra (6 ITRA Points), there will be ultra options of 128km (5 ITRA Points) from Ellery Creek or a 65km (3 ITRA Points) from Standley Chasm.

The most popular and fun event is the fantastic Section 1 of the trail, running a 25km distance from Simpsons Gap and finally a family orientated fun run of around 5km at the Alice Springs Telegraph Station. All events finish on the Sunday at the Historic Alice Springs Telegraph Station in a superb festival environment with food, music and entertainment.
