The Coastal Challenge is a coastal run and walk adventure that sees participants taking on the stunning North Shore coastline. Since 2003 thousands of competitors have walked, run, jumped and, for the longer distances, rock-hopped and waded down the North Shore coastline to Windsor Reserve in Devonport.
Since 2012 Hospice North Shore have been the official charity partner for the Coastal Challenge event. We look forward to again working with, and supporting the Hospice North Shore and hope that our event participants can also help us in supporting and raising funds for this fantastic North Shore based charity.

The Coastal Challenge is pure off-road goodness and right on our back doorstep! Now the Coastal Challenge is not as scary as you think! We have 6km and 11km run and walk options, these contain far less water interaction than the two "biggies" (the 22km and the 33km run events).
As for the 17km run / walk event that starts from Browns Bay ... it sits on the Coastal Challenge fence as the event where you can expect a bit of everything!
Of course, the "Challenge" part of the Coastal Challenge remains firmly in tact across the board but certainly the 6km and 11km events attract a large family component and can also act as great stepping stones to future lengthy endeavours.
The 6km, 11km and 17km events can be run or walked at your own pace and, with the sheer volume of competitors and marshals on the course, you will never be alone out there!
For the more adventurous amongst you - check out the details for the 22km and 33km Full Monty events - x-factors are definitely on offer here ... you'll love them!
