Race Date

The 11th GOW100s trail run will be held on Saturday 19th October 2019.  Subsequent events will be held on approximately the same date each year pending approval by Parks Victoria and dependent on the tides.

Run Entry

Entries will be capped at 100 overall places including up to 10 teams in the 55/45km and will be filled on a first received basis. Once entries are full a waitlist will be generated. I will accept up to 120 entries to cater for withdrawals prior to race day. 

Receipt of entry does not guarantee inclusion in the run. Each entry serves as an application for entry and each runner will be assessed for their suitability to participate based on submitted previous experience. This can be confirmed by contacting me prior to entries opening at andy@trailrunningcompany.com
Successful entrants will receive confirmation via email usually within 24hrs. Unsuccessful applicants will receive a full refund. 

Volunteers from 2018 and the male and female winners from 2018 can pre-enter the day before general entries open. Runners who have finished 3 or more years can also pre-enter.

Solo finishers receive a commemorative GOW buckle. Relay runners receive a GOW medal each.

AURA Membership

Without AURA sanctioning and insurance this event would not be possible. Consider becoming an AURA member to support ultrarunning and earn discounts on entry at major races across the country. 

AURA membership page:


This is a serious ultra marathon requiring a high level of fitness and experience. The run organisers reserve the right to refuse entry. Entrants must provide evidence of a trail ultra completed within the 12 months prior to the run date. In the absence of a suitable trail ultra the applicant must submit evidence of other relevant organised run history for consideration. Entrants must be 18 years of age or older. While the vast majority of the GOW course is runnable, entrants should be aware of the relatively tight cut-offs at checkpoints that will be enforced. If uncertain about your suitability for the GOW100s please email me before the entries open: mailto:andy@trailrunningcompany.com


Entries received after the field is full will be placed on a waitlist unless they request to be removed. The waitlist will be in order of entries received. Once the entrant list drops back to 100 overall when another entrant withdraws before race day the first person on the waitlist will be offered that position, and so on. Once a runner withdraws the first entrant on the waitlist will be sent an email offer to register. They will be given 2 business days to respond before the offer closes and moves to the next entrant on the waitlist. There may be difficulties matching T-shirt to runners entering off the waitlist once orders have been lodged but all attempts to provide appropriate sizing will be undertaken.


Check Cancellation policy page for details. Make sure you are happy with it before entering. 

Transferring Entries

Entries are not transferrable and cannot be rolled over to the next year. Any runner withdrawing before the race start cannot transfer their entry to another, it becomes available for the first runner on the waitlist.


The ambulance is not a free service in Victoria. You should ensure you have ambulance cover either by joining, through your health fund or with suitable travel insurance. A simple broken ankle where you may require an air-ambulance evacuation could cost you thousands of dollars.


The event has public liability insurance through AURA. But this does not cover personal accident or injury for runners. You should have your own personal accident insurance. An easy way to do this is to take out travel insurance and this also protects any losses due to delayed or cancelled travel or medical expenses. If you don't already have it you should consider income protection insurance to cover any costs you may incur due time off work due to injuries sustained whilst participating in the event. International participants should ensure that their travel insurance provides cover for participation in trail running events.
