The Coastal Challenge 2018


By Alice Morrison

And … they are off. Lucky Devils! This year’s Coastal Challenge Costa Rica (TCC) started on the 11th and will finish on the 17th. It is a multi-stage trail running race through the heavy tropical forest and along the pristine beaches of the ecological haven that is Costa Rica. 

The race facts are:

  • Race start: February 11th
  • Race finish: February 17th
  • Race length: 6 days
  • Distance: Expedition Run 236km | Adventure Run 155km

This is a race that the participants rave about. There is something very special about it. This is what Susie Chan, our RunUltra Ambassador,  had to say about last year in her blog:

There was so much to say about this race that is good. The course is a toughie, but rewarding. The camp life and people you meet are wonderful, encouraging and friendly. The experiences you get are real once in a lifetime stuff. It’s the only race I’ve been to where you take a speedboat to the start line!

The star of the show is Costa Rica itself. Rugged coastlines, scorched fire roads nestled in the mountains, thick jungles and beach sunsets to fill your heart. Tempted?

Tempted? I should say so!

We have some of the very first pictures from the race from our very own, Steve Diederich, who is out there capturing the event. We’ll be sharing them not only here but on our Twitter @RunUltra_UK and Instagram  @RunUltra_official accounts.
