The other great thing about the Jabulani Challenge is not only is it an awesome trail running event it also helps raise money for a great cause, namely the Stellenbosch Community Development Programme which helps underprivileged children in Africa. To be eligible for the Triple Trail Challenge competitors must complete the 22km or 45km course at the Jabulani Challenge.

Race 3: The Coastal Classic

Saturday 5th September 2015, Royal National Park, NSW

The Coastal Classic is the jewel in the Triple Trail Challenge crown and one of the most popular trail running events on the calendar each year. This famous event is a fitting location as the final leg and for the presentation of the coveted Triple Trail Challenge commemorative shirts.

Starting from Otford just north of Wollongong this 29km race runs alongside the coast to finish at picturesque Bundeena on the shores of Port Hacking. Along the 29km route the competitors will rarely be more than a stone’s throw from the mighty Pacific Ocean and with long stretches along cliff tops, over rocky headlands and past unspoiled beaches this is truly a race that will take your breath away.

The Coastal Classic has proven itself as an enduring favourite for trail runners over the events lifetime and sells out quickly as a result. Entries open at 9am sharp on the 20th April, make a note in your diary so you don’t miss out on an entry!
