For the first time ever the Kiama council have opened up this course to hundreds to run one of Australia’s most scenic tracks! Held on the 10th of July the Kiama Coastal Classic is right in the heart of the running season, giving runners of all abilities the perfect lead up event to other major derby’s or as an opportunity to pit themselves off against friends and family.
Each section of this incredible run will keep Runners, Joggers and Walkers mesmerised, taking in the coastal vista and South Coast Icons including the Kiama Blowhole, Werri and Kiama Beaches with rolling green hills on one side and rugged coastline on the other.
The running festival boasts three race distances; 2.5km, 10km and the main event, the 14km Kiama Coastal Classic. The three distances go past the iconic Kiama Blowhole, taking in the breathtaking vistas of the beautiful NSW South Coast. The finish line for all three distances is Black Beach Reserve where there will be a running expo, face painting and prize giveaways.
