Coast to Kosciuszko
December 4, 2020 - December 6, 2020
Coast to Kosciuszko is Australia’s premier running ultramarathon. The concept of the Coast to Kosciuszko ultramarathon was initially floated by Paul Every during the winter of 2004. That November, Paul Every, Diane Weaver and Sean Greenhill scouted a 243km course from Boydtown Beach to the summit of Kosciuszko, and on to the finish at Charlotte Pass.
On 10 December 2004, 4 runners assembled for an inaugural unofficial run from Boydtown Beach to Kosciuszko to see if it could be done.
2007 saw Coast to Kosciuszko being run as an established race. The event was not held in 2018 and 2019 but is targeting recommencing in 2020. It is widely viewed as the most challenging ultramarathon in Australia.
