Bogong is an Official UTA100 Gear Check Store

The UTA100 is the biggest ultra-running event on the calendar. Bogong Equipment is an official gear check store. That means we can go through UTA's Mandatory Gear List with you and check that your items meet the event requirements. If everything's good to go, we'll check you off via UTA's online portal, and you'll get a printed certificate from us.
 
We also stock a variety of trail running gear from Salomon, Ultimate Direction, La Sportiva and more.

New in! Women's Climbing Shoe

La Sportiva Tarantulace Women's Climbing Shoe
A women's version of La Sportiva's popular Tarantulace climbing shoe. This comfort shoe has a last that doesn't crush your toes. Yet, the aggressive heel promotes a snug fit, which helps with edging performance. Constructed of leather and soled with La Sportiva's durable FriXion rubber, this is an excellent quality all-round comfort shoe at a great price point.

New Style Trail Shoe

Salomon S-Lab Sense Ultra 2017
This completely new design from Salomon S-Lab is a trail shoe built for larger runners, or people seeking a shoe with more stability, cushioning and protection. It's beefier than the regular Salomon S-Lab Sense shoe, with special features like a more generous fit and a longer chassis. Yet, it retains the Sense shoe's racing feel.
