Run DateThe 8th GOW100s trail run will be held on Saturday 8th October 2016. Subsequent events will be held on approximately the same date each year pending approval by Parks Victoria (which is not guaranteed) and dependent on the tides.
Run EntryEntries will be via an online system, opening Sunday 10th, April 2016. Follow news update and get on the mailing list.
Entries will be capped at 60 in the 100km and 10 teams in the 55/45km and will be filled on a first received basis. Once entries are full a waitlist will be generated. This year I will accept more than 60 solo entries to cater for withdrawals prior to race day. I will announce how many extra when announcing entries opening.
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 email@example.com
Successful entrants will receive confirmation via email. Unsuccessful applicants will receive a full refund.
Volunteers and male and female winners from 2015 receive an entry offer on the Friday before general entries open. Runners who have finished 3 or more years can also enter early. (Check Roll call if in doubt.)

QualificationThis 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:firstname.lastname@example.org
WaitlistEntries 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 70 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.
Entries are not transferrable. 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 or through your health fund. A simple broken ankle where you may require 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.
