Welcome to the Great Southern Endurance Run 2021
GSER is back for 2021 with a couple of changes taking place; revised courses on 2019’s with a few added extras and a couple less km’s, along with the addition of our 28km event (A perfect introduction to Skyrunning) and the event now being under new ownership from the team at Ultra Endurance.
With COVID restrictions causing many events within the last year, that would be used as qualifiers for GSER being either canceled or postponed, we also have a slightly different way of assessing your qualifying. More details for qualifying can be found here.
We are very excited to see you and your trail crew in Harrietville, November 12th to 14th 2021.
Regards Matt and Megan (the Ultra Endurance Team)
November 12th to 14th 2021
GSER 2021 RACE HQ will be in Tavare Park – Harrietville, the little mountain town in the Victorian high country.
All 3 events will start and finish here and take place on trails within the Alpine National Park.
At GSER 2021 – we have 3 events on offer;
100mile – 161km’s with over 10,000m’s of elevation – Starting 7 am on November 12th.
50mile – 83km’s with over 5,000m’s of elevation – Starting 8 am on November 13th.
28k – 1800m’s of elevation, what goes up – must come down – Starting 7 am on November 13th.
With the lack of events and the availability to get to the Mountains to train in many parts of Australia and around the world over the past year, the qualifying process for GSER 2021 will be a little different.
Check out our qualifying page for all the details on how to get your entry approved for GSER 2021.
Yes, you certainly can have a support crew (we encourage it – the more support for runners out on the trails and at the finish line the better) and Yes, Pacers are allowed for the 100 and 50-mile events (Registration details coming soon).
The team behind the scenes of GSER 2021 is made up of past competitors and trail lovers alike, with the core management team taking over ownership of the event from former owners; Mountain Sports.
Matt Veenstra – Event Director: all-around trail lover who loves to give back to the trail running community.
Megan Harper – Race Director: Isn’t called the Happy Trail Runr for no reason and has been known to be very handy behind the camera and also is very well suited in front.
