Ahead lies a magical 100km trail run journey along Victoria's wild surf coast and exploring its hinterland. This is a unique run with a promise that no two steps will be the same...

The course runs past lighthouses, waterfalls, scenic lookouts, renowned surf beaches (Bells Beach - home of the Rip Curl Pro!), surf life saving clubs, remote wilderness and almost everything in between.
There's headlands to traverse, cliff top and bottom trails, sweeping singletrack ensconsced in unique coastal flora all coupled with jawdropping views across the southern seaboard. It's all part and parcel of the inaugural Surf Coast Century, a 100km ultra trail run like no other, which will quickly become one of the Southern Hemisphere's must-do ultra events.

"The event really showcased the picturesque and uniquely Australian coastline. I can see the event gaining a lot of popularity in the coming years due to this, and the fact that the course has so much single track (which we all know is a trail runner’s favourite kind of track!)" Ben Duffus - 2013 Overall Male Winner
"It's great to see a race take the local terrain, walking tracks and conditions to incorporate them into a uniquely Australian trail race, taking in a wide variety of truly Australian landscapes and environments that took us all on a spectacular journey!" Brendan Davies
"Thanks so much for organising a perfect event!!! What a great course and what a wonderful and unforgettable (and painful...) experience! My legs may disagree but I enjoyed (almost) every moment and will be back next year." Michael Severin
"I entered the 100km Surf Coast Century run and enjoyed very single minute of the 14 hours and 8 minutes I was on the course.
It was the first trail run I’d ever done and the experience was made a memorable one by your enthusiastic and very helpful staff at every hydration point and kitchen. Without the food, drink, leg cream and cheers I wouldn’t have made it.
It was a day I’ll never forget and I’m proud to have say I’ve run/walked 100km.
Thank you for making a truly special occasion possible by organising and executing a superb weekend!"
