About This Activity

The course is set along Costa Rica's tropical Pacific coastline but weaves at times into the Talamancas, a coastal mountain range in the Southwest corner of the country. You’ll finish near the border of Panama in a serene fishing village that until recently was only accessible by boat. If you enjoy long distance running or multi-sport competitions, the Coastal Challenge will prove to be a tremendously unique and rewarding running achievement.It's the diversity you will find astounding!
