Six Foot Track Marathon

The Six Foot Track is a 45km trail stretching across the Blue Mountains from the Explorer's Marked Tree, near Katoomba, to the Jenolan Caves.

The marathon started in 1984 and follows the length of the entire trail.


The race is a not for profit event and all profits are donated to the Blue Mountains Rural Fire Service who man the aid stations on race day.

Each year the event has over 850 entrants completing the course on race day.

The Six Foot Track Marathon does not operate a wait list and entries are not able to be sold or transferred as per race rules.

Next Race date is
Saturday 11th March 2023

Sadly the 2022 race scheduled for 12th March 2022 had to be cancelled due to the condition of the track impacted by consistent heavy rainfall and then also subsequently the height of the Coxs River on race day meant the race would not have proceeded anyway.
