We're in count down mode for two reasons today:

1) entries open to our new Great Southern Stage Run at 12:00pm AEDT on Wednesday www.GreatSouthernStageRun.com.au

2) our local event - the Surf Coast Century - is this weekend with 800+ runners tackling 100km / 50km of our finest trails and beaches. www.SurfCoastCentury.com.au

Both are spectacular runs in beautiful coastal environments...

We are pumped to RETURN TO RACING in person this weekend – yeeha!!

The last round of COVID restrictions and border closures brought our events to a halt – forcing us to cancel / postponed everything for 4 months – UNTIL THIS WEEKEND when we will resume our Trail Running Series at Silvan in the mighty Dandenong Ranges.

All of us at Rapid Ascent love what we do and we really thrive on delivering our races and engaging with the people who do them, so to miss a lot of events for the second year in a row has been hard.

We are very grateful for the VIC Government’s support when things went quiet, and have become accustomed to re-organising our races 2, 3 and even 4 times so we all had something to look forward to – competitors and staff alike.

…until this weekend when we get to fire the start horn once again.

So thank you to all the beautiful people who have sent us messages of support over the last 6 months, to those who retained their entries and accepted the date changes when there was nothing certain in life any more.

We made it though and we’re looking forward to seeing you achieve your goals at our events once again.
