Glasshouse 100 - September

The following 2014 events are now qualifying races for the 2015 The North FaceĀ® Ultra-Trail du Mont-BlancĀ®:

  • 100 mile - 3 points
  • 100 km - 2 points

The 100 mile course consists of two loops - the western section of approximately 110k and the eastern section approximately 50k. The terrain varies from easy gravel road to rough, steep singletrack. Although the elevation gain and loss is relatively small, most of the western section consists of short technical climbs and descents that can be particularly difficult in extreme dry or wet. Most of the Eastern section is flat and less demanding technically. There are beautiful views throughout the course, particularly from the top of Mt Beerburrum and Wildhorse Mountain.

The shorter events at Glasshouse take place on the more challenging and scenic Western section.

13th - 14th September 2014

UPDATE 7 July 2014: A reminder that on line entries for the 100 mile and 100 kilometre runs on September 13/14 are supposed to be in by 3rd August. After that there will be a late entry fee of $30 for the 100 mile and $20 for the 100 kilometres. Entries will close completely on August 31 for these two events. Already there are numerous entries from New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and even one from Singapore and one from Great Britain as well as from interstate. The International Trail Running Association has rated the 100 mile as worth 3 points and the 100 kilometres worth 2 points as a qualifier for events such as UTMB. I had intended to see if belt buckles could be an option to purchase for finishers in the 100 mile but due to the GNW event being put on the same weekend I have decided to defer this option for this year.

Note that there are two Medical Forms - one for 50km events and one for 100ml/km. The later collects information on shirt size as well.
