$2,000 CASH for a record breaking team

We’ve seen the elusive 8-hour 100km barrier broken by a 100km solo runner, with Ash Watson running an incredible 7:57:09 in 2019. So we lay down the challenge…

Can a relay team break the 7 hour barrier for the 100km?

Still unbroken from 2021... the first and fastest relay team of 2, 3 or 4 people to go under 7 hours for the 100km Surf Coast Century will receive $2,000 cash!*

We believe it can be broken… 2015 and 2017 were just 15 minutes over; with most winning teams being of 2 participants in recent years. Who’s up for the challenge? How fast can you go?

Relay Team Results from the past 5 years:

  • 2021 – 8:36.09 – Team Salfied Podium
  • 2020 – 7:31.24 – team HNTR
  • 2019 – 7:49:00 – The Happy Runner Torquay (Team of 4)
  • 2018 – 8:15:54 – Lick the Stamp (Team of 2)
  • 2017 – 7:15:51 – The Humble Servents of Bosco and Walter (Team of 2) – 4:21min pace!
  • 2016 – 7:49:40 – Angus^2 (Team of 2) – 4:41min pace!
  • 2015 – 7:15:41 – Love the Run (Team of 4) – 4:21min pace!

*If more than one team goes under 7 hours, the $2,000 cash goes to the fastest overall team time under 7 hours.

So come on elite runners and super teams – we’ve got $2,000 waiting for you!
