Course Details

100km and 50km of Brisbane trail fun
The Full Guzzler

100km

We are proud to present The Guzzler 100km Ultra run. Leaving from the heart of Brissie trails, Mt Coot-tha, this run is going to take you on an adventure like no other. We take you on tour of some of The Trail Co.'s favourite routes; to beautiful reservoirs, up challenging hills and along single track that will have you flying fast and free, like a kid on the first day of school holidays. You'll need good training, a dash of humour and a pair of well prepared legs for this little run. Don't be lulled by The Guzzler's cheeky nature. She'll test you!

Please note: this is filtered gps data to allow you to view a route in your mapping software. Please use caution if you decide to navigate using these files as GPS data has an inherent margin of error.
