The Great Southern Endurance Run takes on the rugged and picturesque mountains and trails throughout the Victorian Alps.

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 161.8km’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.

This event has been designed to be the gem of 100 miler events in the southern hemisphere.  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 – priceless. This is an event that will impact runners, crew, and volunteers for the better…

For enthusiasts of ultrarunning, trail running, or mountain running, this course represents the epitome of journeys and events.

Qualifying

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 100mile will be a little different.

We encourage anybody that’s looking to take on the 100mile event to sign up and provide your results from any events (or training runs) 100km and greater, along with elevation gain of 4500m’s (minimum) in the last 12months plus what your training plan will look like in the lead up to GSER 2021.

If you can demonstrate a good training history, along with any race results – then we will approve you to take on the GSER100 2021 challenge.

You will need to submit a web link to your file/result (e.g. Strava Link or Official Race Website) when you sign up – or modify your entry profile at some later date to include that link.

This must be completed before 31 October 2021
