The history.... (this is my favourite bit)

Each year 4300 people dive into a sea of history and swim the 1.2 kilometre course of the Lorne Pier to Pub. Over the past 20 years the event has grown in size and statue and now claims centre stage of a three day program that includes the Mountain to Surf Fun Run and the Surf Boat Race Classic.
Who would have imagined that this world famous event started as an informal challenge among Lorne Surf Life Saving Club members? Those who dared would dive from the pier, race the course through Louttit Bay and finish by body-surfing the waves onto the Lorne foreshore. The victors then celebrated at the Lorne Pub, overlooking the finish line.

The race adopted a more formal outlook in 1981, when around 100 people took to the water. It stepped up its prestige in 1998, with 3071 swimmers diving into the Guinness Book of Records, as part of the world’s largest open water swim. Thanks to the unwavering efforts of organisers and volunteers, entries reached 3900 in 2000, and have been capped at 4000 every year since.

The event has attracted the likes of elite athletes, such as Kieran Perkins, Daniel Kowalski, Michael Klim, Rob Woodhouse, Stacey Gartrell, Nicole Stevenson, Daniel McLellan, Hamish Cameron, John Fox and the members of the Oarsome Foursome. Many celebrities, AFL footballers and politicians have also tried their luck.

Celebrated moments include a dead heat finish between 18 year old Ryan Moreland and 21 year old Nick Hinsley, who set a record time of 11.02 minutes in 2001.

The event encapsulates mateship, friendly competition and fun. The course distance enables swimmers of all age groups to participate. Many families and friends have competitions and wagers among themselves, and school students often pose friendly challenges to their teachers.

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.
