The Coastal Challenge 2017 - So much is written about this race and you can sense most articles feel a need to compare it to the MdS. Why? Because the TCC is one of the many contenders for the title 'toughest race' amongst the multi-day (6 day) events. The 2017 version was made to look all too easy by the leading runners, in particular the winner Tom Owens for whom the rugged terrain was well suited. Whilst brutal in parts and usually hot & humid, I would prefer to describe this race using words such as 'friendly, relaxed, varied and beautiful'. With a field numbering less than 100 there was always an intimacy about the event, best measured at the end of each day when elite runners and journeymen mingled freely exchanging experiences, encouragement and advice. There is less formality than some of the mass events but that did nothing to undermine the excellent organisation which included a marked route, amply stocked feed stations, excellent catering and very welcoming campsites at the end of each of the 6 days. Marshall's were always able to anticipate whether to offer a cup of water or to pour a bucket over your head; both were usually required. Personal equipment is transported each day enabling a fresh supply of clothes and personal comforters, so racers just needed to carry hydration, energy snacks (if required) and first aid; a sharp contrast to running a self sufficient event. But in exchange the course dealt a daily variety of terrain which usually comprised steep climbs, sharp ankle turning downhills, river sections, single track and beaches, all bathed in a searing heat that left you forever searching for running water for a quick cooling immersion. All of the 230km was route marked but any lapse in concentration risked a detour, and I seldom felt able - or the need - to reach for my music. When things go wrong and the wheels fall off - or if you prefer a shorter race - there's an option to start each day further along the route and this has the added enjoyment of seeing the leading racers come through. Whilst clearly an easier option, so much better than travelling with the kit lorry each day when you're struck out of the main race or are simply struggling with the terrain and the heat. In summary, it’s great; the TCC is an adventure with endless variety, as challenging as you wish to make it, but one where you're usually able to go to sleep with a smile on your face and a full belly. And in a fresh set of clothes!'
