We’re looking forward to the 3rd 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. 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; 2.5 kilometres, 10 kilometres and the main event, the 14 kilometre Kiama Coastal Classic. The three distances go past the iconic Kiama Blowhole, taking in the breathtaking outlook of the beautiful NSW South Coast. The finish line for all three distances is at Black Beach Reserve where there will be an onsite expo and prize giveaways.
Kiama to Gerringong shuttle bus in the morning
There is a shuttle bus from Kiama to Gerringong available so that 14km athletes can finish at your car on race completion. Bus tickets are available for purchase when registering, and bus times will be sent out prior to the event.
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.
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.
