Coastal Classic

Saturday 4th September, 2021
Royal National Park, Sydney NSW

The popular Coastal Classic is back again in 2021!

Be sure not to indulge too much on the leftover Easter chocolate today that you sleep in tomorrow and miss your alarm. If you do, you risk missing out on your entry to this popular trail running event.

Why is the event so popular?

With 30km of trail running along some of the most spectacular coastline in Australia, if not the world, it’s not hard to see why. The course, which is based along the coast track through the Royal National Park, brings you a stunning vista and breath taking views of the world’s second oldest National Park. Although the area is just South of Sydney, you literally could be in the middle of nowhere.

It’s not just the views that attract such a crowd either. The running itself is top shelf; rocky terrain, beach running, cliff top tracks, rainforest, steep inclines, the trail has it all, plus more. The race has gained a reputation as a great challenge and one that keeps trail runners coming back time after time to hone their strategy as they chase that elusive PB.

Set that alarm, prepare your training plan and be ready come tomorrow morning at 9am to grab yourself an entry.

Don’t miss out!

Max Adventure Race Series

Saturday 4th June 2022
Royal National Park Sydney, NSW

Keen to try an adventure race this year?

Here’s the perfect opportunity to test the waters, kayaking, trail running and mountain biking in a team of two, at the next event in the 2022 Max Adventure Race Series.

The race is a real adventure as you navigate your way through the Royal National Park’s rich bushland and kayak the winding Hacking River. Whether you’re new to the sport of adventure racing and try the novice course or an experienced racer and take on the classic course, you are guaranteed to have a fun-filled day.

The course is a top favorite of the Max Adventure Race Series. The teams set off from Reids Flat into the National Park running past ancient eucalypts and lush forest, paddling down the Hacking River, and mountain biking through speedy single tracks that loop and bend and are great fun to ride. Competitors navigate (not necessarily in the above-mentioned order) to the finish line back at Reids Flat. Phew! What good fun!

We look forward to hosting an epic day.

Check out this video to whet you appetite!

Bouddi Coastal Run Race Report

Saturday 27th February, 2021

Killcare, Central Coast NSW

The fourth edition of the Bouddi Coastal Run in February saw hundreds of enthusiastic trail runners competing at Putty Beach on the NSW Central Coast.

With 21km and 14km course options, the field was a diverse mix of hardened trail veterans and newcomers looking forward to the spectacular views along the race route. The variety of trail surfaces kept everyone on their toes and the views kept everyone smiling until they conquered the final stretch along the beach to the finish line. The beach was very tempting and many runners were seen enjoying a post-race swim to cool down.

Local runners took many of the podium places across all categories with local knowledge obviously an advantage. The fastest Male in the 21km course and the overall winner was Ronnie Sparke in a super quick 1:43:13, an incredible effort and new course record by 20 seconds! Perennial podium finisher Dominic Perry was 2nd in 1.45.20 and James Tunbridge was 3rd in 1:47:12.

The fastest Female on the day was Darna Hedges in 2:19:28 a few minutes clear of Rachel Corbett in 2:22:25 in 2nd, just in front of Amy Teasdale in 2:23:15, well done to these runners on your overall podium finish.

On the 14km course Therese Auton put in a massive run to finish 2nd overall and set a new Female course record in 1:14:18, congratulations Therese. 2nd placed female runner was from the junior category and was Indianna West in 1:29:19, one to watch for the future, who pulled away in the final few hundred metres from mum Colleen West who finished in 1:29:38 and 3rd overall.

The local crew were on top in the 14km Male category, Geoff Arnold first home in 1:10:44, followed by Geoff Webster in 1:15:51 and Martin Newcombe in 1:19:49.
