Cargo Plus Coastal Challenge

UNLEASH YOUR INNER CHAMPION by taking on the Cargo Plus Coastal Challenge along the stunning coastlines of Auckland’s North Shore!

What’s great about this event?

The Coastal Challenge offers participants a unique coastal adventure featuring stretches of running or walking along white sand beaches interspersed with patches of wading through clear, shallow waters and scrambling or hopping over rocks throughout a coastline traverse offering an offroad adventure second to none!

Developed by Total Sport, the Coastal Challenge concept is a unique race designed for participants of all ages and abilities. The event features five distance options and two team categories. Ideal for either individuals or teams, past participants have repeatedly noted the amazing sense of camaraderie, friendship, and good company that this event evokes.

Our courses take you through a series of obstacles, with each varying in difficulty. Whether you’re an international entrant or a local – you’ll see the Auckland coastline from a whole new perspective. 

Afterwards, celebrate with fellow runners and walkers over an ice cold beverage and a swim!

Cargo Plus and Total Sport are proud to support Harbour Hospice with the Coastal Challenge. With your help, victims of life-limiting conditions such as heart failure and multiple sclerosis will find the compassionate, specialist care they deserve.

Challenge yourself on the coastline this summer and prepare yourself for a day of forever memories!

What people say about the Total Sport events

Our first Coastal Challenge and our group loved it! Such a great day out and something for the whole team!

What an awesome event – thank you so much for putting on such a totally mad event with such an incredibly supportive atmosphere. I cannot remember how many times someone offered me a hand over a rock – and so of course in turn I did the same for those behind me.

“What a happy event! The atmosphere was exciting and so welcoming.”
