Spectacular Trail Running12th May 2015
The inaugural Raffertys Coastal Run is shaping up to be another gem on the trail running calendar. Our course planners have spent a bit of time out on the trail and have brought back a few pics of the scenery that runners will experience on race day. If you are like us and prefer your trail running with a good dose of pristine nature then you better sign up for the Raffertys Coastal Run. We only know of one other event that matches this one for sheer beauty, and it sold out last week!
There are three course distances to choose from – 10km, 22km and 35k to accommodate runners/walkers of all abilities. Starting and finishing at Raffertys Resort, the trail 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.
Bring the kids
If we haven’t said it before – the Raffertys Coastal Run is not a one off running event, it is a chance for runners to bring their family, unwind and enjoy a relaxing weekend at Raffertys Resort.
To assist running families, the resort is offering a “Kids Club” – a childcare facility for kids over 4 years of age operating for the duration of the event. Kids will be looked after by childcare professionals and includes a day filled with fun and activities. Some of the activities the kids can look forward to include a jumping castle, face painting, orienteering, kayaking and much more. You can book in for kids club (includes a kids lunch) when you enter the event, for more details click here
Entries for the Raffertys Coastal Run are now open – come and run one of the best new trail running events in NSW and have a relaxing weekend at the same time.
