Mountain To Surf

The GMHBA Lorne Mountain to Surf is in its 31sth year. The run is an 8km fun run starting in Lorne and continuing through the forest and then along the Great Ocean Road and finishing at the Lorne Surf Life Saving Club. The next GMHBA Mountain to Surf will be held on Friday, January 11, 2013 starting at 8:30am. This is a fantastic event which caters for all the family as well as the more serious runners.

Starting in William Street the course winds into the hills behind Lorne and then through the forest along the river’s edge before returning to Lorne along the Great Ocean Rd. A fit runner can expect to complete the race in approximately 30-40 minutes.
The race route is hilly but can be comfortably jogged in about 40-50 minutes by a fit jogger.
