Be part of this unique Backyard Ultra!!!!!Three distinct challenges await, each testing your grit and determination:The ticking clock, relentless and unforgiving, as you strive to complete the loop within the hour.The race against time itself, as you must reach the start line before the next loop begins.The heart-wrenching decision to pull the pin, to withdraw from the event or head out for another loop and see how far you can go.The ultimate triumph belongs to the Last One Standing, the sole victor to complete a loop on their own. The Glasshouse Standing is about more than just personal glory. It’s about preserving the very essence of the Glasshouse Mountains.Every step you take, every drop of sweat you shed, fuels the cause to “Save Our Glasshouse Mountains”.
