We’re looking forward to the 4th year of The Kiama Coastal Classic. Held right in the heart of the running season, giving runners of all ages and abilities the perfect lead up event to other major events or as an opportunity to enjoy themselves among friends and family. This year we have made several changes and have ALL NEW distances available to suit all levels of age and fitness. Each section of this incredible run will keep runners, joggers and walkers mesmerised, taking in the coastal vista and South Coast icons including 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 kilometres, 12 kilometres and the main event, the 21 kilometre Kiama Coastal Classic. The 21km and 2km events are out and back while the 12km is a point to point all taking in the breathtaking view of the coastline. The finish line for all three distances is at Kiama Surf Club where there will be an onsite expo and prize giveaways.
There you stand ready to take a walk in their footsteps, along a path they once wandered. This walk will lead you to various places where they camped, hunted and gathered seafood, shellfish, land animals, birds, bush tucker and bush medicine, as well as tool making and ceremony.Welcome to Wodi-Wodi and Dharawal Land. Our Ancestors roamed up and down this coastline for thousands of years. We pay respect to our ancestral elders, for their spirits still walk this land.

5 winning winter reasons to visit and explore Kiama.
1. IT’S NOT COLD
2. NATURE LOVES WINTER
3. IT’S WINTSPIRATIONAL
4. BOREDOM SOLD SEPARATELY
5. IT’S TRULY UNSPOILT
Shhhh, we’re not even sure we should tell you this. But one of the key features of Kiama being a coastal region is that most visitors come during warmer months. This means that during winter, you’ll have the place mostly to yourself – and it really is quite magical (and surreal) to walk a completely empty beach or lush golf course fairway. Now delete this webpage and tell no one else you saw it.
