Is the travel cost guaranteed?

Inspired will do their best to keep the travel costs as quoted. However please bear in mind they can change due to group size factors out of our control, such as fluctuating exchange rates. The travel cost will be confirmed at the time of invoicing.

How fit do I need to be?

Your adventure is ranked 5/5. While no extensive running experience is required prior to registering, Inspired’s adventures are specifically designed for people who are relatively fit and willing to train. The Australian Outback Marathon is a physical challenge, and the fitter you are, the more you’ll enjoy the experience. It is essential that you prepare for this challenge. They recommend that in the months leading up to your trip, you increase your physical fitness with aerobic exercise.
