The Surf Coast Century has built a reputation as one of Australia’s must-do ultra trail marathons offering 100km and 50km courses.
Event organisers Rapid Ascent anticipate a high demand on entries from across Australia as runners look to cement their goals for the year.
To celebrate 10 years, the event has a number of exciting changes in place, including a new focus on the runners’ experience such as a post-race athlete lounge, and recovery activities and celebrations the day after racing.
The 2020 event went ahead on a postponed date last December with COVID-restricted numbers. As such, the 2021 event will have a focus on bringing people back together and the opportunity to celebrate afterwards.
Competitors can enter either as a solo runner in the 50km or 100km courses, or in a relay team of between two and four runners over the 100km course covering approximately 25km each.
As 2020 first-time 100km solo participant Deidre Mattiske puts so well,
The course takes competitors from Anglesea to Torquay along the beach and then along the cliff top tracks and hinterland trails to Moggs Creek and Aireys Inlet, before returning back in Anglesea on the Surf Coast Walk.
With a big variety in the terrain and scenery, competitors will run above and below towering sea cliffs, remote wilderness, beaches, wildflower hinterland and flowing coastal trails.
