Accommodation and Breakfast Presentation

GOW100s Runner Accommodation

Apollo Bay: If wanting budget accommodation for the Friday night before the race entrants should contact the Apollo Bay Hostel directly to book: Apollo Bay Backpackers Lodge. This is budget style accommodation with 4 bunks to a room with shared bathroom facilities (recently upgraded bathrooms). These beds are at backpacker rates (confirm with Hostel) and are within walking distance of the start. Otherwise there are many other options including the Best Western which is right behind the hotel.

Port Campbell: is only 12km from the finish-line at the 12 Apostles. Runners are encouraged to stay the Saturday night post race in Port Campbell so you can attend the race presentation and breakfast on Sunday morning. The organisers and most runners stay at the Port Campbell Hostel. This is a fantastic relatively new hostel with a range of accommodation from private doubles to shared bunk rooms. The new owners are keen to continue the relationship with the race. Single shared room bed is TBC or TBC if you want a pre-made bed and towel. If you would like to stay at the Port Campbell Hostel you need to contact the Hostel directly: (03) 5598 6305. Once the Hostel rooms are full, the next best option for runners/crew is the Portside Motel.

Breakfast Presentation

Once again the fantastic post-race brekkie with the presentation is on for Sunday morning. Breakfast starting at 8:15am will be supplied by Waves Port Campbell. The presentation and breakfast will be confirmed. This can be booked during online entry for TBC. There is a limit of 5 places available for each runner at the Sunday breakfast. Seating is limited so if you have a bigger family/crew you might need to have breakfast at one of the other café/restaurants in Port Campbell and return for the Presentation at 9:00 am.
