'The danger of an adventure is worth a thousand days of ease and comfort' - Paulo Coelho
The Coastal Challenge, Rainforest Run:
The course is set along Costa Rica's tropical Pacific coastline but weaves at times into the Talamancas, a coastal mountain range in the Southwest corner of the country. You'll finish near the border of Panama in a serene fishing village that until recently was only accessible by boat. Although simple in concept, the race will prove to be extremely difficult in terms of distance, terrain and the tropical climate. The heat and sun will take their toll and you may be severely tested at times. All that said, if you enjoy long distance running or multi-sport competitions, the Coastal Challenge will prove to be a tremendously unique and rewarding running achievement.
Jungle and rainforest trails, mountain trail and single track across ridgelines, highlands and coastal ranges; beaches, rocky outcroppings and reefs, river and estuary crossings. It ends in Corcovado National Park, one of the premier rainforest experiences in the world, as well as a Untesco World Heritage site. It really defies description!
Tropical rainforests, coastal ranges, pristine beaches, river valleys and wildlife. Total course elevation gain of more than 34,000 feet.
We are inspired by adventure.
We are inspired by challenge.
We are inspired by the thrill of the unknown and what lays ahead.
We are inspired by witnessing the will to move forward and endure. We are inspired by steely determination and courage.
We are inspired by achievements, both great and small, that are the result of hard work, preparation and perseverence.
Whether endurance runner, trail runner or trekker we invite you to join us at one of our events for a remarkable opportunity to dig deep and toss aside words like impossible or insurmountable for good.
You won't be dissapointed and we suspect that somewhere along the way you'll be inspired too.
