The beauty and appeal of the Bellarine Coastal Trail is you will always be within 50m of the beach and 50m from the Esplanade it also happens to be 10.7km between the piers of Portarlington and St Leonard's meaning it is perfect for 10km/half marathon distances, it's a course everyone will get across quickly with plenty of room for overtaking those who are mesmerised by the view and the bonus is there's few hills.
