  About event
The Surf Coast Trail Marathon is a trail running event offering participants marathon and half marathon runs along the stunning Surf Coast Walk tracking from Torquay to Fairhaven on Victoria's famed Surf Coast, an hour south west of Melbourne.

In the marathon, you can have a crack at the full distance solo, or knock off roughly half each in teams of two. Or try the half for a taster.

In many ways, this is the perfect event for all runners eyeing the two quintessential distances. For road runners it offers a first taste for trail, without being intimidating as a relatively non-technical, non-remote, non-mountainous trail. For experienced trailites, the route still features stunning wilderness with coastal viewpoints you won't believe (and becomes a truly go-fast course with plenty of good twists and turns).

From iconic Bells Beach (yes you run a short stretch of this hallowed turf) to the clifftops of Point Addis and Anglesea and on to Split Point lighthouse at Airyes Inlet: this course deserves to be renowned for the sheer experience of journeying through a unique natural environment . We thought that a run along its entirety was worth a shot.
