RIP TO RIVER classic

A 10 km surf beach run from "The Rip" at Point Lonsdale to Ocean Grove by the Barwon River. Arguably the oldest Fun Run in Australia, the Rip to River, held early every Summer, is one of the club's most iconic events. It is also our single biggest fundraiser and each year we welcome approximately 1000 runners to the pristine hard sand track from the Pt Lonsdale lighthouse to the main beach at Ocean Grove.

A massive thanks to everyone who made our 2023 fundraising event a huge success. 1100 entries was the most we’ve had post-COVID.

Hope to see you all again next year!
