The Powercor Lorne Mountain to Surf is a CovidSafe event. To enter you must be fully vaccinated.
There are a few changes to the way we are running the event due to Covid. This space is evolving quite quickly so please check back here for the latest information.
Entries open on the 1st of November 2021
On the day start will be a two step process this year. The first step will be a QR code and covid certificate check followed by lining up for the start. We have moved the start to the oval on Williams St
Do not attend if you are feeling unwell.
Stay 1.5m apart.
Use hand sanitiser before registration and competing.
Download the Service Victoria app.
Link in you covid certificate.
If you don’t have a mobile then print out your covid vaccination certificate and bring it with you.
No proof of vaccination no run!
Wear a mask!
We are using a wave start with the fastest runners going first, followed by slower runners, walkers, people in star wars costumes, etc.
Waves are smaller and a bit further apart. Waves start at 8:30 AM.
Water is provided on exit from the run as well as drink stations along the course.
Please collect your gear, change, and leave.
Prize presentations. Category winners will be notified by SMS.
We are offering a virtual run this year as well as the actual run. The virtual run you complete the run in your local track street park etc, and tell us the time that you did. Results for the virtual run will be shown as an asterisked entry.
The virtual run is good for people who can’t compete due to travel restrictions etc.
The virtual run includes a tshirt which will be mailed to you in January.
In 2022 we have added a new age open age category for elite runners. This is a by invitation wave that will be the first wave of runners to leave from the oval. You can apply to be a supergoat during registration.
To avoid queues at the start we are offering a pre-registration where Covid Vaccination status can be checked.
Proof of Covid Vaccination is either Thursday before the run between 2pm and 7pm next to the T-shirt Marquee on the event foreshore (preferred) or the Friday from 7am at at the race pre-start area prior to entering the start queue
Due to Covid we are trying to minimise the number of people on site. We would ask that you don’t bring spectators with you and that you leave the site once your run is complete. We have reduced the size of run waves and are generally trying to keep one competitor to 2 square metres. So where possible please stay 1.5m apart. Lots of these changes are going to make for a different run than in past years and we would ask for your patience and forbearance running a CovidSafe and separated event.
The whole what is happening due to Covid is a bit uncertain (and that is an understatement). We are investing in delivering another great sold out Lorne event.
If we have to react to a change in circumstance due to covid and health directions (which would be a reduction in Lorne event numbers), we will conduct a ballot of runners from those already entered and give places to ballot winners and virtual runs to the rest. During on-line registration, you get to say what you would like to happen to the balance of your entry fee if such a worst case situation developed, virtual and a donation or virtual and a small refund.
If we have to cancel the event then everyone gets entered into the virtual event. As we are investing now in delivering a normal event with the associated costs, there is no withdrawal and refund, just entry conversion to virtual.
If you have Covid, Covid symptoms, or should be isolating during the Lorne event timeframe, please don’t attend and contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a withdrawal and refund.
We would like to thank the support of our fantastic sponsors in 2021/22:
