Please note that in order for your place to be accepted on the 2024 TCC, you must read and agree to the following terms and conditions… More Than Running 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
- South Africa

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.
Payments for the event are typically split into an initial non-refundable registration deposit of $650 payable immediately, two instalments due July and October, plus a final balance payment being due on the 15 November 2023 – these dates will be confirmed to you after registration. Race entry cost for 2024 will be $3050 for runner entry and $2450 for the companion entry, and $1535 for under 12s. We strongly recommend you get event insurance to cover your entry fee in the event of any unforeseen event that may prevent you getting to the start line.
