Rip to River

A 10 km surf beach run from "The Rip" at Point Lonsdale to Ocean Grove near the Barwon River.

Arguably the oldest Fun Run in Australia, RT Edgar Rip to River, held early every summer, is one of Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving 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.
