This epic race has already attracted the most competitive field ever assembled in Australia for an event spanning over 100 miles. The inaugural GPT 100 Miler offers competitors the choice of tackling the grueling 158km trail either continuously, or over a four-day stage race format, with the option of a team relay in both formats.
The race begins at Mt Zero in the North and culminates in Dunkeld in the South. Additionally, there’s a 50km option for those who wish to experience the breathtaking Grampians Peaks Trail in a shorter format.
As runners traverse remote wilderness, they will encounter 12 campsites, each featuring stunning huts strategically placed along the route in the most secluded spots.
The central township of Halls Gap will serve as the event’s basecamp and headquarters for five days, promising a positive economic impact on local businesses and accommodation providers.
The GPT 100 Miler caters to every trail runner with a quest to accomplish, achieve and experience the best that Australian wilderness has to offer.
