Terms and Conditions

Please note that in order for your place to be accepted on the 2018 TCC, you must read and agree to the following terms and conditions…

Run Ultra Ltd act as agents on behalf of TCC Adventures in respect of the event, The Coastal Challenge. We take no responsibility for the event itself, its organisation or operation. TCC Adventures act as a principal in this matter and your contract is with them.

The TCC is run annually in February and is a multistage race of variable length – usually 230-250 km. The race organisers reserve the right to alter the length and format of the race at their discretion and at any time.

We are limited to the number of places available to persons residing in the following countries:

  • United Kingdom
  • Ireland


Team Entries

Competitors have the choice of entering as either individuals or as teams, a team being three or more members. Team members pay an additional registration fee (usually £100 per entrant) and in return a team ranking is recorded during the race so long as the team continues to have a minimum of three members.


Entry costs

We are not in a position to accurately predict entry costs beyond one year in advance as these are subject to organiser fees, travel and accommodation costs and arrangements, exchange rates and taxes. We guarantee to confirm final costings within 10 months prior to the race date.


If we have not stated the entry fee upon your registration and deposit payment, we do undertake to release you from your commitment to your payment and place (if that is your wish) and have a complete refund of all monies paid, if the costs of the event increase cumulatively, more that 10% per year between your year of registration and year of competition.


Payments for the event are typically split into an initial registration fee of £650, plus a final balance payment being due on the 15th October –  these dates will be confirmed to you after registration. For 2018, entry costs are £2075 for individual entrants.
