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.
