To aspiring C2K debutants, welcome! We hope to greet you in Eden in December.

For returning runners, you will be familiar with much of the information below, but please pay particular attention to the entry process, as with unprecedented interest in this year’s event, we may very well reach our limit of 50 competitors this year.

Race details

The 2010 Coast to Kosciuszko Ultramarathon will start from Boydtown Beach at 5:30am on Friday 10 December and finish at Charlotte Pass. The course will remain open for 46 hours.

The field will be restricted to a maximum of 50 runners, to be selected from all runners submitting an application within entry period. All runners are required to have demonstrated ability in ultramarathon events as per the selection criteria as stated on the race website.

Entry will not be on the basis of the first 50 entries received. Entry to the event is at the discretion of race organisers.

Mandatory support crew

For first time Coast to Kosci runners, please be aware that it is compulsory for each runner to have a designated support crew to provide them with food, fluids, clothing, etc as required through out the event. Please be aware it is the responsibility of each runner to organise his or her own support crew.  

For runners experiencing genuine difficulties in securing the services of a support crew, we will endeavour to pass on contact details of the few people who contact us with an interest in acting as crew. Preference will be giving to assisting runners travelling from overseas.
