This one is a sensational option for those new to trail running, with less time to spare, or just looking for an easier, closer-to-a-strong-latte-at-all-times kind of experience.
Following the 44km Surf Coast Walk, this two day run weaves along the coastline famous for being home to Bells beach and the Great Ocean Road. Stretching from the surf town of Torquay, you will run south west, towards your finish at Fairhaven. In between, enjoy stunning headland vistas, short but wild beach runs, hinterland heath, Ironbark forests, important Indigenous landscapes and riverland estuaries.
While never far as the crow flies from the beautiful coastal hamlets of Anglesea and Aireys Inlet, you will still feel very much in a wild environment for the most part. You will also get to step along iconic Bells Beach and we can introduce you to some of the finer culinary and drinking delights of the Surf Coast, maybe a massage or two and if you like divert off to some cultural experiences.
For those in a super rush, we can run you along the route in a single day if you want to really push yourself, although you may like to check out Tour de Trails' www.surfcoasttrailmarathon.com event, if that timing suits (June), or a fun taster in the form of the 21km / 12km Afterglow Twilight-Night Trail Run event, with its fun and fluro vibe in November www.afterglowtrail.com.au.
As one of our shortest tours, and also being located in our back yard (TdT is based in Anglesea), we do not have set date departures for this tour, rather we encourage you to drop us a line and we'll make it work for your personal timeline. There are no minimum numbers for this tour - we design an itinerary around what you what, using the Surf Coast Walk and running its length as our anchorpoint. Otherwise, we curate an experience to your liking and budget.
JUST DOWN THE COAST: experience our very special TATSE OF TRAIL: LORNE runs, set in the waterfall wonderland that is the hinterland of Lorne, the Noosa of the South! Check it out here.
