About the Glasshouse Trails
Established 31 years ago this year, it's fair to say, though some will argue, that without these events Australia would not have the trail running scene it currently enjoys, certainly not in the realms of ultra marathon running. Indeed, the Glasshouse 100 (mile) was the first 100 mile trail race in the country and continues to be the longest running event of its kind in the country.
For some of the finest runners that this country has produced, 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 (still the fastest trail miler in Australia by virtue of his 15:39 win over Waugh in 2011) and so many more.
From Graham Medill through to Walter Brumniach and, during what might say it's best years, the 'Miler' drew the best - Deb Nicholl, Marita Eisler, Lisa Spink and Brendan Mason among many. Though it wasn't just about the fastest - Bill Thompson remains the only runner (correct us if we're wrong) to have 12 finishes under his belt with Stuey Grills creeping up!
The bottom line? 'The House', the original 'Runner's Miler', is where it was, will be and should be where it's at. We aim to make it so.
