Another Classic event!

16th September 2014

Sunny weather greeted competitors as they lined up for the 5th annual Coastal Classic. Many people were commenting that their training had been interrupted by ill health and or the recent wet weather. However, neither of these factors held back over 650 trail runners who tackled the 29km (some would argue the trail felt much longer) along some of Sydney’s most stunning coastline.

First across the line was Marty Keyes in a super quick time of 2:26:56. First female across the line was Sophie Brown in 2:51:50 who pipped Maeve Birdsall for line honours by less than a minute!

Of special note was Fred Ellison, the youngest competitor (14 years old) ever to complete the Coastal Classic in an incredible time of 3:45:53 while Ludwig Herpich took just over 5 hours, a brilliant effort from the oldest competitor who was 79 on race day!

Full results are now available HERE.

In the mean time make note of Tuesday the 31st of March when entries open for the next edition of the Coastal Classic which will be held on Saturday 5th September 2015.
