What’s the best thing about running 100 miles at Great Southern Endurance Race (GSER)? Is it the high country 360* mountain views, the achievement of getting to the finish line or receiving the unique finisher medal from the race directors?
Whatever floats your boat, this run has got it. Starting and finishing in Harrietville, the Great Southern Endurance Run is one of the most rugged and picturesque mountain trail runs in Australia, with four distance categories: 100 miles (160.9 km), 50 miles (80.5 km), 56km, and 28 km.
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.
