Formerly known as the Great Ocean Road Marathon, the Great Ocean Road Running Festival is held in a beautiful and unique area of Victoria, and has grown into a true running festival, with multiple event distances and entertainment throughout the weekend.

Festival activities will be running over the entire weekend, including yoga, kite-making, live music and more.

There are plenty of places to stay along this stunning stretch of iconic coastline. Check out the website to find out more about glamping, local accommodation, and travel packages. If you're making a weekend of it, then you'll find plenty to see and do.

Head out to the Twelve Apostles, or inland to the Otways hinterland. Explore the surf beaches or treat yourself to some local cuisine.
