Cancelled for 2021

COVID-19 will continue to influence our world through 2021 and well beyond. As a consequence GOW has been cancelled for 2021 and all roll-over entries refunded. We all know only too well that we can't predict what will happen and there is never any certainty but we aim to be back in 2022. In the meantime, please stay safe.

  • Finishes at the world famous 12 Apostles 

  • This is the original trail ultra on the west coast of Victoria
