(56 km, 50-mile events)

At GSER, we encourage support crews to be out on course at the accessible aid stations to support their runners and help aid them in getting to the finish line.

The first job for the support crew is to read the support crew section of the runner’s booklet – released 5 weeks from race weekend, It will contain important information you will need to know for the event. 

To keep the event manageable as well as fair and safe for all athletes, and to make sure support crews do not get lost, the following information is to help support everyone to make this happen.


The main areas of each aid station allow for support crews to assist their runner as they arrive.

Aid Stations – will be within a sectioned-off area that contains the race food marquee and drop bag marquee. Space is limited so please show courtesy. The runner can meet their crew within the food/drop bag area and when they’ve finished being supported, they should follow the markers to continue on course.

The Great Southern Endurance Run encourages spectators to come and be part of the event, you add so much to the atmosphere and excitement. We have identified the best vantage points to cheer on runners along the course, outlined below. Due to the remote course, there are a couple of main points spectators can see runners. We ask that you take care when driving to support runners, for your own safety and the safety of the runners.
