The Glasshouse Trails Series has been running since 1989 with the first 100 mile event having been run in 1995. It's the oldest trail series in Australia and the 'Miler' was the first and remains the longest running 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!
We would not have the trail running scene that we currently enjoy in Australia were it not for these events. It's our intention at AAA Racing & Coaching to ensure that it remains on the calendar and to enable a growth that is consurmate with it's stature and history - 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 and thank you for your support.
