THE COASTAL CHALLENGE, RAINFOREST RUN

11TH  EDITION

The Coastal Challenge is one of the world’s most grueling multi-stage races. Running 230km in six stages, this race puts to the test the mental toughness, will and endurance of some of the best ultra trail runners of the world.

It also offers a shorter course option in six stages with some stages reduced in distance to total 15ok.

The course is set along Costa Rica’s tropical Pacific coastline but weaves at times into the Talamancas, a coastal mountain range in the Southwest corner of the country. You’ll finish near the border of Panama in a serene fishing village that until recently was only accessible by boat. Although simple in concept, the race will prove to be extremely difficult in terms of distance, terrain and the tropical climate. The heat and sun will take their toll and you may be severely tested at times. If you enjoy long distance running and adventure then the  Coastal Challenge is for you and will prove to be a tremendously rewarding achievement.

It’s the diversity you will find astounding!

Jungle and rainforest trails, mountain trail and single track across ridgelines, 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!

Total course elevation gain of more than 34,000 feet.
