About the Summer Surf Coast Series

 

The Surf Coast series consists of four events each starting at 4PM on consecutive Saturday afternoons in January.

They are held at the historic and spectacular coastal towns mainly on the Bellarine Peninsula.

The maps are usually of regular Park Street format:
A4 size, Black & white, scale 1:10000 and usually 10 meter contours. We never said it was flat!

There are a choice of courses. Choose from 40, 50, 60 or 90 minutes for runners and 60 or 90 mminutes for power walkers.

New comers are always made welcome. Just turn up about 3.30 to register on the day and we will help you and explain the event. No previous experience or special equipment like a compass is required.

Courses are designed to accomodate people of all ages and abilities. The Power Walking courses also accomodates those people who would just like to stroll around and find a few control plates.

Detail of the upcoming summer events are available on this website by October so you have plenty of time to see which events will fit in.

Depending on the weather this can be a great opportunity to combine a swim and other activities on the day.

Weather conditions can vary enormously on the peninsula whichs adds to the fun and the drama. The 4pm start avoids the hottest part of the day and allows for a leaisurly drive to the events.
