Welcome to Surf Coast Century

19 September 2020

Entries to open in March…

The Surf Coast Century is a spectacular 50km and 100km ultra marathon traversing Victoria’s Surf Coast and Great Ocean Road.

Both the 100KM and 50KM formats take runners on an extraordinary journey along towering sea cliffs, remote beaches, wildflower hinterland and spiraling single track. No two steps are the same on this epic ultra marathon run.

The event has a great reputation as the ideal introduction for those tackling their first ultra marathon. The accessible course, professional support services, easy logistics (start and finish in Anglesea) and incredible aura generated by supporters, runners and officials makes the Surf Coast Century newbie friendly.
