Wow what a race day! Congratulations to every single runner who took on Coastal Classic 2023! This was the 14th year of the Coastal Classic, what an incredible journey from start to finish.
Mother Nature was on our side this year, blessing us with a glorious, sunny day setting the scene for an unforgettable coastal trail run. It was a striking departure from last year’s event, but that’s trail running for you – endlessly unpredictable and we love it!

So, here’s to the folks who’ve been making our event a part of their lives for 10+ years – you’re all rockstars in our book!
