Prom Run—May 2019

Parks Victoria have advised that the track from Oberon Car Park to Sealers Cove is unlikely to be reopened before late 2024 due to significant work that has to be undertaken in rebuilding the entire section of boardwalk.

They are aiming to have the track from Oberon Bay to Little Oberon Bay to Norman Beach open prior to December 2022.

As a result of these closures, we have revised the Prom Run for 2023.

  1. We have added in a short, but hard 27.7 km course which for the first time includes the summit of Mt Oberon
  2. The 44 km will be as per 2021 and 2022—a 47 km run which includes the Lighthouse but returns via Oberon Bay
  3. The 60 km will be as per 2021 and 2022—a 66 km run which includes Mt Bishop, the Lighthouse and returns via Oberon Bay
  4. The 80 km will start as per 2021 and 2022—a 79.7 km run which includes Mt Bishop, Mt Oberon, the Lighthouse and returns via Oberon Bay. This will be a tough one!
  5. The 100 km will cover the tracks from Oberon Car park to Waterloo bay and then a return trip out to Sealers via Refuge Cove before resorting to its traditional course of Lighthouse, Sth Point, Oberon Bay and the Mt Bishop Loop, a distance of approximately 102.5 km

Maps and course profile are being updated.

Run the Prom. Wilsons Promontory National Park offers, Australia’s most spectacular coastal ultra. Experience the sound of waves crashing on rocks, feel the sand under your feet, the wind in your hair and the water up to your waist as you tackle this wilderness paradise. The Prom 100 offers runners 27, 47, 66, 80 and 100 km run loops on the Saturday only 3.5 hours from Melbourne and is followed on the Sunday by the Darby River Half Marathon and 2/5/10 km fun run —a great weekend away for all the family.

Parks Victoria have advised that works to Sealers Track and Oberon will not be finished until next spring, therefore we are offering alternative courses in 2023. Please check the Maps page for course descriptions.
