The Great Ocean Road Running Festival is held in a beautiful and unique area of Victoria, Australia on the Southern Ocean. Each year that this event has been conducted, it has attracted many athletes from around the world, all eager to participate in this challenging and pristine environment. The Great Ocean Road is an icon in Australia and is renowned throughout the world for its beauty and panoramic views of the Southern Ocean. It has a colourful history surrounding its construction and ultimate destinations along the coastline.

Anyone travelling along this road by car would not be able to experience the absolute serenity and at times the wilderness experience that you as a runner can. As you run along this course, with no traffic at all, you can almost hear the waves calling your name. The only sound you will hear is the soft thud of footsteps from your fellow competitors.
