The Great Ocean Road Running Festival 2016 incorporates several events, including the renowned Great Ocean Road Marathon. The festival is held in a beautiful and unique area of the southern coastline of Victoria, Australia.

The Great Ocean Road is an icon in Australia and is renowned throughout the world for its beauty and panoramic views of the southern ocean. It has a colorful history surrounding its construction and ultimate destinations along the coastline.

Anyone travelling along this road by car would not be able to experience the absolute serenity and at times the wilderness experience that you as a runner can. As you run along this course, with no traffic at all, you can almost hear the waves calling your name. The only sound you will hear is the soft thud of footsteps from your fellow competitors.

If you are driving down to Apollo Bay via the Great Ocean Road, you can see kangaroos usually, lounging on the Golf Course at Anglesea. Worth a brief stopover on route. Koalas are usually ‘snoozing’ during the day high up in certain gum trees along the Great Ocean Road.
