Morning weather report: quite a bit of morning fog, should be mostly gone by 8am. After that should be quite a bit of sun. Warmer day today with Dalgety reaching a top of 26C, Jindabyne 22C and Charlotte Pass 16C, feeling much warmer in the sun.
Winds look stronger today, especially up the mountains. Gusting up around 50-60km/h on the mountains this afternoon (Will feel 4-7 degrees colder in the wind). There is a 30% chance of an afternoon thunderstorm up the ranges. Will be a small one so wouldn’t expect it to cause too much disruption.
An amazing sunrise as the runners approach the 24 hour mark

Runners and crew refuelling at Dalgety checkpoint at 2am
Runners and crews go steadily through Dalgety, where they are welcomed to the Dalgety Hall with four choices of soup, bread, tea and coffee courtesy of the locals Lachlan Beed and Texan Young.
The reports are that the leader, Nick Bamford, who passed through at 8:30pm, looked super strong.
Unfortunately Jan Hermann and Barry Keem had withdrawn from the race earlier today. Both are well and safe with their crews.
As the sun goes down, the forecast is looking relatively mild. Our weatherman Joel Pippard reports that the weather is getting down to 8C, feeling like 5C due to the winds that are expected to ease somewhat. There’s a good chance of late evening and early morning fog, particularly in the valleys. Saturday looks likely to be warmer and windier. At this stage Jindabyne will have a maximum of 22C and Charlotte Pass 16C.
Runners on Bukalong Siding, where they pass the iconic dead tree on their way to checkpoint four.
David Vroom through checkpoint four at a cracking pace.
If you aren’t running to Cow Bail trail or on the highway to Bibbenluke crossing, the next best thing is pouring over the pictures of those who are. Great work by our roving snappers.
Speedster Nicholas Bamford leads the field through the Gunningrah Road checkpoint, 108 km, followed by Barry Keem.
While the focus is rightly on the amazing job the runners are doing today, crewing is also a tough and glamorous role as this picture shows!
Race started at exactly 5:30am
Good morning! Weather report from our own weatherman Joel Pippard.
Rain looks to be clearing a bit for the coast and a cool 13C to start the race. There will be low cloud about today which may act as heavy fog from around Cathcart with a bit of light misty rain. Top temp about 18C. Should clear a bit more into the afternoon. Jindabyne did get 8mm of rain last night so there is a good chance of some heavier showers popping in and out up on the mountains.
Looks like great running conditions!
Good luck all!
We’re delighted to commence the live coverage of Coast To Kosci 2022 a little bit earlier than usual – the registration finished earlier this evening and we managed to pull a few photos of the runners together ?
