Get ready to kill it at Coastal Ascent 2020. Training session including course recon and technique tips and tricks.


Session starts at 6am and runs for up to 2 Hours. For those running the return leg of the 25km run (which allows you to cover most sections of the course and get a very good understanding and feel for the full 25km Route – We will start our run out near Dudley) this will likely require some car pooling on the morning which we will communicate details on in the lead-up week.

1 Group will run the 11km course and the second group will run the return leg of the 25km course. Make sure you are aware of getting to the correct start location

Note: There are two seperate start points! If you are running the 11km course your start is at Dixon Park! Just behind the SLSC. There is plenty of parking and our Coaches will be there to meet you and take you out to complete the full 11km course.

If you want to run the return leg of the 25km Course (we will run in total between 12-14km) you need to meet at Banksia Avenue Dudley  . Please note though that we will finish at DIXON PARK. We will be able to give a few of you a lift back to your cars if required, others may run back BUT we also suggest you can get to Dixon Park @ 5:30am on Saturday and between the Runlab Coaches and Fellow runners we can car pool the required runners to Banksia Avenue Dudley. Note that we will leave at 5:40am Sharp if you are wanting to do this option


We will get in touch with you the week of the event with all the details of the session. Cost is $35 and includes the session and Hydration for all runners. We will accomodate all levels of runner – but suggest if you are not able to run for at least 45 minutes and train 2-3 times a week, this may not be suitable for you, so please email us if you are not sure.

Session 1. The Runs11km

This training run is specifically targeted to those runners looking to take on an 11km trail run for the first time OR improve on times from previous road or trail runs. We will separate into 2 groups classified as intermediate/advanced and beginner to ensure that all runners are looked after and can complete the route safely without getting lost or being left behind. If you are in the beginner group you are not expected to run the entire 11km in one go, as such there will be walking breaks to allow all runners to finish.

Session 2. 25km 

Targeted to those doing the 25km. We will depart Dixon park from 5:40am driving out to Banksia Street Dudley then running back to Dixon Park. The length of this run will be approximately 15km, OR just meet us there at Banksia Avenue.
