Each year we appoint several different event ambassadors who we believe embody the different aspects of the Surf Coast Century. They’re here to inspire and help inspire you to be a part of the Surf Coast Century!

2024 Elite Ambassadors

Coming soon!

2024 Rookie Ambassadors

Each year we appoint a ‘Rookie Ambassador’ who is lining up for their first ultra marathon at the Surf Coast Century. We follow their progress and share their stories as they train, learn and develop into ultra runners – providing stories we can all relate to and inspiring all runners along the way.

In 2024 we are excited to announce that we will appoint 2 Rookie Ambassadors and are accepting applications for who they will be!

  • 100KM Rookie – a 100km first-time participant
  • 50KM Rookie – NEW – a 50km first time participant

HOW TO APPLY to be one of our Rookie Ambassadors:

E-mail us at [email protected] by Monday 22nd April with the following stories:

  • why do you want to run 100km / 50km…
  • a little about your background and where you are coming from (in terms of fitness and sports…)
  • a photo of you in a place that makes you happy!

We will give you a call for a friendly chat about your information and then announce our “rookies” by the end of April.

A few more notes:

  • Rookie ambassadors will receive a free entry, some event merchandise and a pair of shoes from La Sportiva and hydration / nutrition products from Skratch and Clif Bar as well as some other sponsor products.
  • Rookie ambassadors will be expected to send us an update on their training once a month and share a few stories and progress notes as they prepare for the event that we can share publicly.
