Race Date

Both the 100 Mile and 100 Kilometre events will start at 6:00am on Saturday, 9 September 2017, from Tulkaba Park, York Street, Teralba, NSW.

Qualification

Age.  Runners must be at least 18 years of age on the day of the race.

Experience.  Runners must have completed a marathon in less than 4.5 hours, or achieved an equivalent performance, or be able to demonstrate proficiency in long-distance trail running, in the three years preceding the day of the race.  Evidence of this must be supplied at the time of entering.  If prospective Runners are unsure of whether their qualifying performances will be sufficient, they are encouraged to seek pre-approval by emailing details to the Race Director at GNW100s@terrigaltrotters.com.au before Entries open.  The final decision on whether an Entrant has acceptable qualifying performance or experience will rest with the Race Director.

Entry Fee

Entry Fees are A$330 for the 100 Mile Event and A$250 for the 100 Kilometre Event.  Members of the Australian Ultra Runners Association (AURA) received a 10% discount, making the Entry Fee A$297 for the 100 Mile Event and A$225 for the 100 Kilometre Event.
