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 between (approximately) 6km and 16km in length.
Runners can participate as solo runners, completing all nine stages, or as members of relay teams of up to four runners. Relay teams can allocate stages between team members at their own discretion, but each member must run at least one stage on Saturday and one stage on Sunday. Terrain for the race includes beach, trail, cross-country course, bike path / footpath, fire trail, low-use dirt country roads and low-use bitumen roads. Roads are not closed to traffic for the event.
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.
