GSER is one of the most rugged and picturesque mountain trail runs in Australia.
Starting and finishing in the small mountain village of Harrietville, runners venture into the mountains, summiting peaks with views that last for days, and experience sections of the iconic Australian Alps Walking Track within the Victorian Alpine National Park.
GSER 2024 consists of:
28 km – a great introduction to mountain running capturing the summit of Mt Feathertop before descending to the finishline.
56 km – the perfect event for anyone wanted a day out in the mountains taking in multiple summits with epic views.
50 mile – for the trail lover whose done a 100 km event but wants more vert over less Km’s!
100 mile – the ultimate mountain adventure for all looking to tackle that next bucket list race!
And any women taking part in any of the events at GSER become a member of Race Director Megan’s vision for the event, the #womenofgser group – an encouraging, empowering and supportive group of women getting out onto the trails!
We are very excited to see you and your trail crew in Harrietville, November 2024.
Regards Matt and Megan (the Ultra Endurance Team)
GSER 28km has been designed as an introduction to mountain running with the course tackling some very sweet single track trails and include some steep climbs with very rewarding views.
There is no doubt that this will take true grit and determination to finish, but what goes up, must come down and your trail crew will be awaiting your arrival at the finish line!
GSER 56 km provides all runners an epic day out on the trails. Our course showcases the iconic high country trails of North West Spur, Mt Feathertop, the Razorback, Mt Hotham and the Mt Hotham Huts walk trail, before descending Bon Accord track back to the finish line.
If you’ve completed a coastal 56 km, your next challenge is a High country 56 km – we know which one is more rewarding and think you’ll love what we have in store for you!
The 50miler event has been designed to allow runners who have conquered a 56k or 60km trail running event to take that next step, with the desire of conquering the mountains.
The course tackles trails that are predominantly single track and include the historical Australian Alps Walking Trail for many parts. The grit and determination it takes participants to finish will be nothing short of extraordinary. The experience along the way – is priceless.
Previously a point-to-point race, we have now opted for a course that will provide runners greater safety and comradery on many sections along the trail.
With 161.8 km’s and 10,685m’s of ascent, runners will be challenged beyond their known capabilities and stripped bare to the soul in their quest to make it to the finish line of the most spectacular and amazing trail runs in the southern hemisphere.
