The Great Ocean Road will be completely closed between Lorne and Skenes Creek (traffic will be under escort between Skenes Creek and Apollo Bay) from 7am on Sunday May 21.

We encourage all spectators to be in Apollo Bay before the road closes at 7am to avoid the Great Ocean Road closure and ensure you see your runner finish.
