The Guzzler Ultra - Year 620th—21st July 2024

The Dry Run

The Dry Run 10km Trail Race Mt Coot-tha
The Dry Run: Trail 10km


Sunday 21st July 2024



Course Description

The Dry Run gives runners a chance to test themselves over the first and last part of our Guzzler course. Think of it as a dry run, ready for you to jump into the longer events in years to come!

While our 10km runners won’t get to experience the beautiful reservoirs that the other events enjoy, you will run down Reservoir Track on Mt Coot-tha, which is kind of the same thing.*

Held on Sunday morning, The Dry Run will start and finish from the main Event Precinct on Mt Coot-tha. You’ll complete the first section of the 100km course, before looping around to head back up the mountain and join the 21km runners and the last of our 100km runners as you all race towards the finish line party.

*It’s not the same thing at all. But you should still have fun doing it!

Course Timing

The Dry Run starts and finishes from the event precinct at 7:00am Sunday Sunday 21st July 2024.

You’ll have up to 3.5hrs to complete the course.

Mandatory & Recommended Gear

Capacity to carry 500mL water

This may be in the form of a reservoir, soft flasks, bottles or any combination of these.

You don’t need to have 500mL of water in there at all times (after all – you should be drinking it!) but do need to be able to carry that much to ensure you can safely complete the distance between each checkpoint.

Recommended Flasks and Reservoirs

Race Bib

Will be supplied at registration. Bibs must be visible on your front at all times for the timing chip to work and for your safety.

Bibs will include your timing chip, your name (for early entries), and a unique number.

Soft Cup

The event is cup-free so if you’d like to have some soft drink afterwards, you may want to bring a cup along instead of using your water flasks.

Recommended Soft Cups


Always recommended. Sunburn is nobody’s idea of a good time!

Cap / SunSafe Hat

Slip, slop, slap!

To follow the 10km course, after installing on your mobile phone please download the .kml file below and select “open with” application. 

If using a different application or gps watch you may need to download the 10km .gpx file instead.

ALL RUNNERS UNDER 14 years of age on the day of the event MUST BE DIRECTLY SUPERVISED for the duration of the run – that is, a parent or guardian must run with the child for the entire distance, and they too must be entered in the same event.
