Welcome to Surf Coast Century

UPDATE 20-9-21: It is with enthusiastic certainty that we advise the 2021 Surf Coast Century has been rescheduled to Saturday 4th December.

The Victorian Government’s ‘Roadmap out of lockdown’ ruled out our October date but it has given us direction and certainty for the delivery of events in the future. Any delay is a frustrating one when you are training your heart out and we are incredibly sorry to change the date a second time, but we are confident this is the last change and we are really excited the event can proceed.

We will follow the Government’s guidelines and at this stage it appears highly likely that all competitors over 16yrs will need to be full vaccinated in order to compete. So please get vaccinated – further confirmation to come.

ENTRIES: All entries have been transferred to the new race date. All entrants will receive an e-mail outlining your entry options with reference to our online refund policy.

Thank you for your understanding and support. Stay strong, stay active.

UPDATE 30-8-20: It is with regret that we advise that the Surf Coast Century has been rescheduled to Saturday 23rd October 2021. We wanted to give competitors every possible chance to achieve your goals on the original date of 11 September but with the lockdown continuing in Victoria and around the country, we will reschedule to Saturday 23rd October.

CARE PACKAGE: We understand the commitment and sacrifice competitors make when training for an ultra-marathon and the disappointment postponement provides. So we have prepared a CARE PACKAGE to assist, including: how to reset your mindset, how to restructure your training, strength training programs to do at home, tips to handle the stress + more.

[If Victoria is still in lockdown on 23 October then we will reschedule to a later date to be advised – but let’s hope that’s not the case!].


Rescheduled to 4 December 2021

The Surf Coast Century 2021 – a spectacular 50km and 100km ultra marathon races for solo runners and relay teams in the Surf Coast and Great Ocean Road region.

All runners undertake a magnificent journey below towering sea cliffs, along remote beaches and through extensive wildflower hinterland that leaves you breathless for the beauty of the area as much as for the exertion of the exercise!

This is a spectacular course where no two steps are the same!

The event is highly regarded by experienced ultra-runners (the course is fast!), but more importantly has a great reputation for those tackling their first ultra marathon by not being too difficult. The course is accessible, with a number of support services, easy race logistics (start and finish in Anglesea) and an incredible event vibe generated by supporters, runners and officials.

All in all the Surf Coast Century should not to be missed. Make it your 2021 destination.
