The Coastal Challenge is open to individuals and teams of individuals, amateur and professional runners, but unlike any other ultra marathon, TCC offers you a choice: to enter the Expedition or Adventure category. If you want to run hard and fast, the Expedition category is a true test for the more experienced runner. Or simply sign up for an adventure of a lifetime, through the diverse and challenging landscape of one of the most magical and inaccessible places in the world.

The Coastal Challenge is one of the world’s most inspiring and grueling multi-stage races. Running 236km in six stages, this race has  tested the mental toughness, will and endurance of some of the best ultra trail runners of the world as well as runners from all walks of life who have toed the line each year.

Jungle and rainforest trails, mountain trail and single track across ridge lines, highlands and coastal ranges; pristine beaches, rocky outcroppings and reefs, river valleys, river and estuary crossings. It ends in Corcovado National Park, one of the premier rainforest experiences in the world, as well as a Unesco World Heritage site. It really defies description!
