Our Coastal Classic Runners Workshop last year was a great success, providing runners with the right training advice for this course, demonstrating how important Strength & Conditioning Training is for Trail Running, how to be a Better Technical Trail Runner, Injury Prevention, and Training and Race Nutrition. Next Workshops dates will be announced soon.
But first things first – get your entry! This coming Monday 18th April at 9am. Entries will sell out fast so don’t wait! Be a part of this spectacular event!
Why is the event so popular? Well 29km of trail running along some of the most spectacular coastline in Australia if not the world is the answer. Based along the coast track through the Royal National Park this race brings you stunning vista after breathtaking view. While you are only just south of Sydney the views offered by the world’s second oldest National Park means you literally could be in the middle of nowhere.
It’s also not just the views that attract such a crowd, the running itself is top shelf as well. Rocky terrain, beach running, cliff top tracks, rainforest, steep inclines, the trail has it all, plus more. The race is also gaining a reputation as a deceptively difficult challenge for trail runners and one that keeps them coming back to hone their strategy as they chase that elusive PB.
The event is on Saturday 3rd September 2016 so make a note on your calendar, prepare your training plan and be ready Monday morning to grab an entry.
