Competitors in the Surf Coast Century presented by MINI saw their dreams become a reality over the weekend in one of the first mass-participation events post-COVID-19 in Victoria.
The 100km and 50km races had restricted fields just shy of capacity as runners tackled the challenging and scenic courses as either a solo runner or as part of a relay team. Each race started and finished in Anglesea, with the support of the Surf Coast Shire behind the hall-mark event.
The triumph and elation at the finish line proved it was a race worth holding out for throughout the ups and downs that COVID-19 related restrictions had on competitors and Torquay-based event organisers Rapid Ascent.
Rapid Ascent’s Event Director Sam Maffett was thrilled the event was able to come to life in the current COVID-19 climate after State Government reassurance was received only weeks prior to race day.
