The second annual Portsea SLSC Bay to Surf is fast approaching. This page provides important information for entrants to help everyone complete a safe and successful event.
Event Start Area
The Bay to Surf start area is located at Jarman Oval, Quarantine Station within the Point Nepean National Park.
Parking will be available near the start area on Jarman Oval, and near the finish at the Portsea back beach car park. A complimentary bus service will ferry entrants between the start and finish areas as required.

The first bus will leave the Portsea back beach car park at 3:45 pm. The last bus will depart the Portsea back beach car park at 9:00pm.
All entrants are required to register at the start area at the allocated time. This includes entrants who have pre-registered and those who enter the event on the day.
Pre-registered competitors will be sent an individual code that they must bring with them, either on their phone or printed out, prior to the event. Competitors will scan their individual code when they approach the registration tent. Competitors will then receive their race bib.
On-day race entry will be available at the starting area via QR code, so a smartphone will be required. Payment can be made on the day by cash or credit card.

On the beach, all entrants must keep to the water’s edge as there are active hooded plover breeding sites on the upper part of the beach.
We ask that event participants follow the directions of marshals and race volunteers and treat all race officials with patience and respect.

Separate categories will be provided for male and female placegetters in both over-18 and under-18 age groups.
Places will be determined according to the competitor whose torso crosses the finish line first as judged by the finish line officials. Recorded times will not determine placegetters. All decisions of the Race Director are final.

A food truck will be available at the finish for all competitors and spectators.
