Ocean Grove SLSC Rip to River

Event Date - 29th December 2018

 It's back again!  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 1500  runners to the pristine hard sand track from the Pt Lonsdale lighthouse to the main beach at Ocean Grove.

Including the classic 10 km surf beach run from "The Rip" at Point Lonsdale to Ocean Grove by the Barwon River.

Please refer below and check other Rip to River menu items on the event website where you will find information about event categories, entry fees, prizes, start times and the running course.
