The Glasshouse 100
Incorporating the Australan National 100 Mile Championships


The Glasshouse Trails Series has been running since 1990 with the first 100 mile event having been run in 1996.  It's the oldest trail series in Australia and the 'Miler' was the first and remains the longest running in the country.  The Glasshouse 100 has taken place on the second weekend of September almost ever since and quite rightly will be the host of the inaugural Australian National 100 Mile Championships in 2022. 

For some of the finest runners that this country has produced and hosted, this is where they first tested their mettle and put foot to dirt.  Martin Fryer, Kelvin Marshall, David Waugh (who sort of owns the miler), Mike Le Roux (RSA) - the fastest trail 100 in Australia until Carl Read's (NZ) record breaking run at the BVRT100s in June 2021 - and so many more, from the early years of Graham Medill and Walter Brumniach.

AAA racing accept it in good faith that the mandatory list is adhered to by participants, though there will be spot checks on course


  • ​Runners in the 100 mile and 100 km events can have pacers from CP7 or after dark, whichever comes first for them.

  • All pacers must be registered (they can be registered from the same registration page as all other ioptions).

  • All pacers, without exception, are subject to the same mandatory kit requirements.

Course Maps

Below are your options for GPS data and maps for the GH100.  There will be a checkpoint location and distance matrix added soon.

NOTE:  the 100 mile course runs 'Section A' followed by 'Section B' inclusive of a second climb up Mt Beerburrum ... and they get Glen Hendry's Dungeon twice!

We strongly recommend that participants use the 'Maps.Me' application and load the KML file of your chosen event:

  • KML files - Maps.Me, Google Earth, Google Maps (my places)

  • GPX files - Garmin Connect, Google Earth (import), Strava Upload (Strava is flawed when uploading GPX and often opts for the nearest road when it cannot determine the route on trail)

  • Thumbnail - click on any to view an enlarged pop-up of the map (best viewed on a tablet, laptop or PC)

You can also download images of all routes in PDF format, HERE

All of these files have been thoroughly tested on Windows and Mac OS as well as Android and iOS​ - hover over the main image to navigate:

If you're having difficulty viewing the CP data, you can link directly to it HERE
During the Event

Course Marking

Course marking will consist of flagging tape, arrows on trees and signage where necessary


It is essential, with no exceptions, that each participant carries a water bottle at the very minimum. There will be water at all CPs along with other provisions (specifics to be advised as necessary to participants by email, prior to event day)



Any rubbish can be taken from you each time you visit a checkpoint. Anything that leaves the checkpoint with you must stay with you until you can dispose of it properly and not on the course. We’d like to set and maintain an example to those less conscientious.


Toilet facilities are available at the start/finish area and at some locations along the course (dependent on the event).  Please do not remove paper from the toilets.


If you pull out or have to leave the course for any reason, please advise the checkpoint staff or those at the start finish area.

Practice mindfulness

Regardless of ability, please be mindful of other runners: If you’re a faster runner wanting to pass, advise the runner in front by all means, but be patient and don’t pressurise anyone. It can be unnerving and easily lead to a trip. Conversely, if you are aware of a faster runner behind you, take the utmost of care and allow them to pass when it’s safe. Many a runner/walker’s day can be blighted by the smallest of incidents and we want everyone to leave on Saturday night being a little better for their experience. Look after each other out there.

Health and injury

This isn’t the nanny state by any means but we are out on the trail. As per the waiver agreed to on entry, should you become injured or should event staff consider that you need medical attention or examination, do not continue until authorised to do so. If it’s deemed that it’s not in your interests to continue, you will be withdrawn from the event. We’d rather make the mistake of scratching someone who could continue than letting someone who shouldn’t.

Remember where you are

We don’t like to talk about it, but we are in Queensland and many of the locals aren’t so friendly if they’re frightened or disturbed. Watch where you’re putting your feet and keep a close eye on the ground as well as ahead.

We recommend that you carry a compression bandage and understand how to apply it. Take a look here:

The event crew are running the show

Cooperate with event crew/officials/volunteers all the times - they're there not only because they enjoy giving something back or participating in a different way, but because they have event experience. They know what they're doing and they'll be under instruction from the race directors. Under whatever circumstances, the event directors decisions are final ... and they're usually the same as the crew! :)


Finally, have Fun!
It is a compulsory requirement of all participants at AAA Racing events to have fun. Failure to have any fun will be frowned upon by the event management team!
