A 100 mile endurance run like no other in the southern hemisphere. The GSER100 was run for the first time in 2017.

Schedule: 2017, 2021: Mt Buller to Bright 2019, 2023: Bright to Mt Buller The Great Southern Endurance Run takes on the rugged and picturesque mountains and trails throughout the Victorian Alps. In an odd year event runners climb over 10,207m of ascent and tackle 11,464m of descent over 182km distance. In even year events those numbers are reversed. In both iterations of the event, runners are challenged beyond their known capabilities and stripped bare to the soul in their quest to make it to the finish line of the most brutal, spectacular and amazing run in the southern hemisphere. 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. This is an event that will impact runners, crew and volunteers for the better� 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� Sean Greenhill, GSER Management Team The Great Southern Endurance Run will offer a 100 miler Solo or relay option and a 50 mile option.

Sat-Sun 23-24 Nov ADVENTURETHON CLARENCE VALLEY STAGE EVENT (NSW)
For some time we have wanted to put on an event with every leg being a stunner in its� own right, with no need to compromise on quality. We often found that there were people who would love to do 1 discipline but not all of them and that finding teammates was kind of a hard process if they weren�t already part of the multisport circles. Hence the evolution of the Adventurethon Demolish Format onto the scene. Demolish is essentially an Adventurethon event which has been pulled apart to create 3 stand alone individual races, with times that can be tallied together in a stage race format at the end to find an overall champion. However, it can also can be raced as a team, in pairs, or simply just attempt your favourite leg. The Clarence Valley event will feature an amazing tour of the area taking in some challenging but fun mountain biking, adventure running and paddling over 2 days. Bring your family and mates and settle in for some great camping and entertainment with seriously easy logistics and a warm, country atmosphere at the heart of the weekend.
