Raffertys Coastal Run


** PLEASE NOTE RAFFERTY'S COASTAL RUN HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO SATURDAY 7 AUGUST 2021 DUE TO RECENT COVID RESTRICTIONS **

Are you a trail runner? Or know someone who is? If trail running is your passion and you're looking for an event offering trails with beautiful coastal views and a variety of terrain, you’ve come to the right place! You’ll find all this and more at Raffertys Coastal Run on Saturday 3rd July, 2021.

 

The family-friendly event is hosted from the magnificent Raffertys Resort on the shores of beautiful Lake Macquarie. Nestled amongst beaches and bush on the quiet bay of Cams Wharf, the self-catering resort offers visitors an opportunity to experience 38 acres of pure relaxation and rejuvenation – just 90 minutes north of Sydney. It provides the perfect backdrop for a weekend of running and activities for the whole family. On offer are three course distances; 12km, 22km and 36km to accommodate runners/walkers of all abilities. There’s even a 1km Kids Fun Run and an Orienteering event to keep the little tikes occupied.


This event is heavily focused on creating a unique experience for participants and their families for the entire weekend, not just race day. The whole family will enjoy exploring the region and spending time together in the great outdoors.


Says Mark Roberts, Race Director from event organiser Max Adventure:

‘The 36km Raffertys Coastal Run course rivals the challenge and sheer beauty of the iconic Sydney trail run event, Coastal Classic. Running along these trails feels like you are on a remote coastline, it is simply spectacular. After 5 years, as we expected, this event matches the popularity of the Coastal Classic, with all the same elements of a truly iconic trail run. It has gained much popularity from your everyday runners, fun runners and die-hard trail runners alike.’


Starting and finishing at Raffertys Resort, the course snakes through the Wallarah National Park taking in the sites of beautiful Lake Macquarie and the stunning coastline of historic Catherine Hill Bay and the Munmorah State Conservation Area.


The terrain is varied; bushland single track, fire trail, coastal tracks, rock platforms and beach running all feature to challenge and excite the most discerning of trail runners.


So what are you waiting for? Entries are now 60% sold out with organisers expecting it to completely sell out in the next month as have all their events this year with runners so keen to get back out there and race again.
