The Concrete Shoe – NEW CHALLENGE

2021 Concrete Shoe Challenge – the Boat Ramp Blitz

As good as this sounds we will not be conducting it in 2020. 2021 will be the first Boat Ramp Blitz.

The prestigious Concrete Shoe trophy

We present a new challenge to determine the winner of the prestigious Concrete Shoe Trophy in 2020 – the Boat Ramp Blitz.

Open to the anyone who completed the 100km Surf Coast Century as a solo competitor on Saturday, the Boat Ramp Blitz will be held on the boat ramp next to the Anglesea Surf Life Saving Club, on Sunday morning immediately following Presentations.

The challenge will consist of 3 reps up and down the boat ramp to the immense cheers and celebrations of spectators lining the ramp. The fastest to complete the 3x reps will be the winner!

The boat ramp is a nasty little hill, short, steep, sealed and full of hurt – especially when you’ve run 100km the day before. Free to enter you’ll need to bring your rocket socks and your speed to get your name on the trophy. Good luck.

BACKGROUND: For 2012 to 2019, the Concrete Shoe trophy was presented to the runner who completed the 100km solo on Saturday and the Trail Running Series 23km long course event on Sunday in the fastest combined time! Previous winners include: Francesco Ciancio, Shona Stephenson, Brendan Davies, Andy Turner, Stuart Hughes (x2!!) and Jason Rawlings.
