2022 Events .

Starting and Finishing at Tavare Park in the Victorian Alps mountain town of Harrietville, Victoria on offer is our 100 mile, 50 mile, 28 km and 56 km events.

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.
