100% of profits support cancer prevention.

We  Great Ocean Road

... and you will too!

One of Australia’s greatest, and most unique, making it a runner’s bucket list event - with the quirk of an unusual 23km 'ultra' half marathon.

With something for everyone it's easy to make it a weekend away, with family and friends running or cheerleading for other runners across the weekend.

Great Ocean Road is different to city running festivals, offering unique experiences that you won't get at Blackmores Sydney Running Festival, Melbourne Marathon, or Gold Coast Marathon.

You will get country hospitality by the bucket-load, a course that takes in the magnificent views of the Southern Ocean, the chance to spot koalas along the way, and run the most iconic stretch of road in Australia that most people rarely get a chance to drive along in a car.
