In late 2018, the YMCA Canberra Runners Club took ownership of the iconic Capital to Coast event from the Nowra Athletics Club. In 2019 the first YMCA Canberra Capital to Coast was held.
Thank you to all sponsors, participants and volunteers.
The Club is hard at work to deliver a new and improved Capital to Coast for 2020. Unfortunately the 2019/20 bushfire season has impacted the course. We will continue to monitor the situation and advise you of our planned 2020 event as soon as possible.
Capital to Coast (C2C) is a 100km multistage event held from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon at various locations between Canberra, ACT, and Huskisson, NSW. The event consists of a prologue on the Friday, four stages on the Saturday and a further four stages on the Sunday. Stages range from 7km to 16km in length.
Capital to Coast can be run individually, in pairs or teams of three or four. Pairs and Teams can allocate stages between team members at their own discretion.
The commencement of each stage is organised as a mass start of all runners competing in the stage. Runner and relay team times for the event are calculated as the sum of the elapsed time for each stage of the event. Participants (and support crew) are responsible for transport from the completion of a stage to the start of the next stage. Participants are also responsible for their own accommodation.
