Coast 2 Kosci Ultra Marathon
Coast 2 Kosci is a 240km race from Eden on the NSW south coast, to the summit of Australia’s highest peak; Mt Kosciuszko. It is an uphill course along dirt and sealed roads and passes through forest, countryside and the alpine region of Mt Kosciusko National Park in the heart of Australia’s ski fields. Each year, 50 ultra-runners with a proven record of racing, are invited to participate and have 46 hours to cross the finish line.
It’s an honour to be asked to participate in this race. It is held as the jewel in the crown of Australian ultra-racing. The prize for success is a hat pin, a little triangle of metal that cannot be purchased, it can only be earned. I first completed this race in 2013, with subsequent success in 2015, 2016 and 2017. My current personal best time is 35 hours and 10 minutes.
