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. contact: Melanie Michael. email: Visit the website for more details. Click here for an entryform.

Great holiday vibe and excellent course between Dromana on the Port Phillip Bay side and Cape Schanck on the Bass Strait side. That's a 28km crossing (or 56km double crossing) of the Mornington Peninsula - and not at the skinny bit! Up and over Arthur's Seat for fantastic rural and coastal views. Through Greens Bush, the largest piece of remnant native bushland on the Peninsula. Along the cliff tops of Bass Straight approaching the lighthouse. Now capped at 1100 total participants, it's one of Australia's premier destination trail events. Book in asap. It's sold out every year.  contact: Rohan Day. email: Visit the website for more details. Click here for an entryform.
