Trail Running Rookie Ambassador

Could this be you…??!! Rather than just appointing fast runners as our event ambassadors, we want to highlight the journey and commitment that first time runners also make to the event. So we’re running a competition to find the next Trail Running Rookie Ambassador so we can share a new journey to the 100km event.

We have run a similar competition over the last 2 years with Julie Savage our selected rookie in 2016 and Emmeline Fisher in 2017 – you can read some of their terrific blog posts and reports here. But now we’re looking for our rookie ambassador for 2018 and encourage you to consider applying, with the following conditions:

  • The successful ambassador must be willing to share their journey as they prepare for the event, with a monthly blog post and a few photos and updates in between times
  • Must be committed and training to run the 100km Surf Coast Century, having never raced more than 60km in the past
  • We will provide you with a free entry, some race merchandise and some goodies from our sponsors (shoes and some apparel…)

Applications are now open and need to be sent to before 10am Monday 26th March. To apply, please:

  • Send in a brief article / blog that answers the question: What has inspired me to decide to take on the Surf Coast Century 100 km as my first ultra-marathon?
  • We will create a short list of applicants and then call you for a brief chat to learn a little more about you (and visa versa!)

If you have ANY QUESTIONS about this then please call us at any time (03 5261 5511), but the rookie ambassador has a lot of fun and always provides great inspiration to all other ultra newcomers. We look forward to hearing from you!
