About the Race

WHY RUN IT?

The Surf Coast Century is like the Pleasantville of ultrarunning. It’s almost too perfect! Between the hard packed sand that’s just right for running, the constantly diverse scenery, and stunning shoreline views, it’s got everything you could ask for in a race. It’s even got just the right amount of challenge with +/-6,000 feet of elevation and rolling hills almost the whole way.

“In ultrarunning, the pain is inevitable, but the suffering is optional.”

- Al Bogenhuber

If you have some time to spend in Australia post-race, there’s adventures to be had in almost every direction! Likely the best option is to do a one-way rental from Melbourne to Adelaide and drive the Great Ocean Road, since the race is directly en route.
