Surf Coast Century routes

If the course can be summarised in two words they would be 'spectacular’ and 'diverse'. There's clifftop trails providing endless ocean views, there's single track that weaves through the hinterland bush, there's wild flowers, waterfalls, lighthouses, beaches and a whole range of other jaw-dropping landscapes that you'll race through as part of this incredible event.

We have stopped at nothing to secure the best possible course for this race and being in our own backyard we’ve included all the secret spots that few people know about… This is a course that provides plenty of variety to keep you interested and excited, easy access for spectators and support crews, and extensive on-course support and assistance.

This course may be completed by individuals and relay teams.

Individuals: one person completing the full 100km
Relay teams of 2: two people who share the four legs between them, interchanging only at the designated transition areas. Each runner may do consecutive legs, or break it up and do alternate legs and then hand over to their team mate who does a leg who then hands back and so forth.
Relay teams of 3 or 4: this may be four people who each do one leg, or a team of 3 where one person does 2 legs and the others do 1 leg each.

Individual runners only (no relay teams for the 50km). The 50km Half Century course will be held over the second half of the 100km course, over the famed Leg 3 and Leg 4 (as per 2017 and 2018).

Previous years the course was held over Legs 1 and 2 of the 100km course.

A 2.4km run around the Anglesea River for kids on Sunday morning. Well over 100+ enthusiastic kids take part in this spectacle event that gives our junior runners aged up to 10 years the chance have a go.
