Event Details

WHAT?

The Surf Coast Trail Marathon is an inaugural off-road running event offering a marathon (42.2km) and a half marathon (21.1km) distance along the stunning Surf Coast Walk, which starts in Torquay and finishes in Fairhaven, Victoria. 

WHEN? Saturday, 28 June, 2014

WHERE? The marathon event will start in Torquay opposite the Wyndham Resort on The Esplanade and finish at the Fairhaven Surf Life Saving Club in Fairhaven, located aside the famous Great Ocean Road. The event has been created specifically to highlight the beauty of the Surf Coast Walk, a mostly graded walk that tracks along clifftops, over headlands, along beaches and through hinterland forests. The start location, Torquay, is located just over an hour south west of Melbourne, on the Surf Coast - famous as the gateway to the Great Ocean Road and home to Bells Beach, one of the most famous surfing spots in the world.

In many ways, this is the perfect event for all runners eyeing the two quintessential distances.

For road runners it offers a first taste for trail, without being intimidating as a relatively non-technical, non-remote, non-mountainous trail. For experienced trailites, the route still features stunning wilderness with coastal viewpoints you won’t believe (and becomes a truly go-fast course with plenty of good twists and turns).

From iconic Bells Beach (yes you run a short stretch of this hallowed turf) to the clifftops of Point Addis and Anglesea and on to Split Point lighthouse at Airyes Inlet: this course deserves to be renowned for the sheer experience of journeying through a unique natural environment . We thought that a run along its entirety was worth a shot.

The half marathon event will start in Point Addis and finish at Fairhaven. 

WHO?

This event will cater to all marathoners and half marathoners from road runners, trail runners,ironmen/ironwomen, and triathletes as the course is non technical, relatively flat (as in there are no mountains - there are still small hills!) and excellent trail marking providing a unique experience in the surf capital of Australia. 

ENTRY TYPES

In the marathon, you can have a crack at the full distance solo, or knock off roughly half each in teams of two as a relay. Of try the half marathon for a taster.
