Surf Coast Century 2014 – Oscars 100 v The Teams

Think you have what it takes to beat the guys at Oscars100 (probably not as hard as our misguided confidence would like to think), well now is your opportunity to prove it!
Imagine running at the foot of some of Australia’s tallest coastal cliffs, while the low tide of the Southern Ocean laps the sand at your feet. Ahead lies a magical 100km trail run journey along Victoria’s wild surf coast and wildflower hinterland.
Welcome to the Surf Coast Century!

This is a unique run with a promise that no two steps will be the same… and we welcome you to be part of it in 2014 as fully fledged members of Team Oscars100.

For weeks now we’ve tired you all with our stories of ultimate endurance and courage in our successful conquest of the dreaded North Face 100, possibly the world’s toughest endurance event of all time……. OK maybe not the hardest but it was pretty difficult…….. OK it was a challenge……..
Well for those of you out there who have had a gutful of our gloating and self-praise, this is your chance to launch yourself into our stratosphere. Oscars100 V’s The Teams will be a race to determine once and for all whether the guys at Oscars100 have overinflated their athletic capabilities or (more than likely the case) completely unplay their levels of awesomeness.
Best of all, and for a purpose higher than our gloating, participants will use their new found levels of awesomeness to assist us in raising funds, as all funds raised go directly back to Oscars100, to allow us to continue funding early intervention programs while increasing the awareness of Autism in Australia.

 

How it will work

100km Competitors – For the hardcore, the salts of the earth, the all round legend. The kind of person you would take home to meet your parents. Your Mum would love them, your dad maybe not so much. In short,  Andrew and Andy will be back again for another 100km event in order to raise their awesomeness meter just a little higher. 100km virgins Matt Welch, Belle Campbell and Michelle Flanagan have bravely chosen this as his first Ultra-Marathon event and we will be there right along side them just to ensure their ego’s are kept in check…….. OK already they will be making sure our egos are kept in check. Admittedly Matt was taken advantage of while in a slightly inebriated state and Belle has been worn down over a period of 10 months with relentless begging, grovelling and pleading from the two Andrews. Michelle, all if took was the promise of beer, wine and spirits delivered from a drinking hat at the finish line and she was in. All are complete legends and are welcome additions to the awesomeness stratosphere.

50km Competitors – The 50km runner will complete half of the course and in doing so become an official Ultra Marathon athlete. Not for the faint hearted but perfect for those who are looking to run a 100km race in the future.

Oscars100 Teams The SCC Relay teams will be made up of four people with each competing in a different leg of the race:

Leg 01: is along the beach from Angelsea to Torquay through the inter tidal zone the whole way with some technical terrain over reefs and rocks. It is basically flat from start to finish. (21km)
Leg 02: is a mixture of gravel footpaths and narrow single track through the bush. Whilst not exactly hilly, this section is best described as undulating. (28km)
Leg 03: is mixture of 2WD, 4WD and single tracks through more remote sections of the coastal bushland (with extensive wildflowers all around). This is the hilliest leg of the race and the crux of the course. (28km)
Leg 04: is for the show boaters, the glory hounds. While everyone has done the hard yards they soak up the victory through the finishers shoot like they have done the whole thing themselves………. Um, sorry, I mean this leg is another mixture of 2WD, 4WD tracks and single track that returns you to the beach for a stint along the sand to the finish. This has a hilly start but a flat finish. (23km)
You can check out the more detailed course descriptions here: http://www.rapidascent.com.au/SurfcoastCentury/CourseDescriptionAndMap.aspx

At this point we have 6 teams taking on the 100km runners. These legends are a mixture of experienced marathoners, fun runners, footballers and total novices but they all have one single very important quality that elevates them to legendary status. They all worship Andrew and Andy………. No seriously they d…….. OK they don’t but they are all legends because they are all generously donating their time and effort to our cause. The teams to date are:

Team 01 Team 02 Team 03 Team 04 Team 05 Team 06
Michelle Martello TBC Scott Jones John Brown Shan Cooper Ozgur Begen
Kirsty Ham Alicea Stagg Darren Hansen Lynette Brown Ben Cooper Matthew Macdonald
Jason Ham Michelle Bach Jeff Sells Jr Brown Ben Anderson Michelle Barrile
Allisha Crowther Paul Foley Kate Foley Ring In Brown Charlie Morgan Gary Slaughter
