A 100 mile endurance run like no other in the southern hemisphere.
Starting in the ski township of Mt Buller, just 2.5hrs drive from Melbourne International Airport and with a downhill start – the Great Southern Endurance Run takes on the rugged and picturesque mountains and trails throughout the Victorian Alps. Runners climb over 9400m and descent 10,600m in their quest to get to the finish line in the picturesque township of Bright, Victoria.
This event has been designed to be the gem of 100 miler events in the southern hemisphere. The point to point journey is epic, the trails are predominantly single trail and the historical Australian Alps Walking Trail is used for parts of the course. The grit and determination it will take participants to finish will be nothing short of extraordinary. The experience along the way – priceless.
For enthusiasts of ultra running, trail running or mountain running, this course represents the epitome of journeys and events.
“In designing this course – we wanted people to get a pure experience of the Mountains in Australia, we looked for a journey, something that really spoke to the achievement of finishing, to say you have run from Mt Buller to Bright, across the mountains – it’s a formidable challenge in a special setting, that’s ultra running at its best”
