Volunteer Help

We still need a few volunteers for Raffertys Coastal Run. Volunteers could be assisting at one of the aid stations, acting as a course marshal, handing out finishers medals or a variety of other tasks.

All volunteers at Raffertys Coastal Run will receive a free volunteer t-shirt and cap; and will be provided with a snack bag to keep you going during the day. As an added bonus anyone who volunteers for the whole day, will earn themselves a free entry into either Raffertys Coastal Run or Jabulani Challenge in 2019 or you could use the free entry into this year’s Bouddi Coastal Run or Coastal Classic.

If you have a family member, trail running buddy or friend keen to come along and volunteer at the event (with the chance to see you in action on the course) simply get them to fill in the Volunteer Proforma available via the link below.

Transfers & Course Changes

Participants can transfer their entry to another person or change their course distance online up until midnight on Wednesday 10th July only.

Transfers can be done by logging into your active.com account, selecting your ‘MyEvents’ portal and transferring your registration via email to another athlete. The new athlete must claim your registration via email before a refund will be processed and returned to your credit card minus a $20 admin fee. Please note that the new athlete claiming the transferred entry, will need to pay the current entry fee at the time of claiming.

Course Changes (change in event distance) can be done by emailing info@maxadventure.com.au by midnight on Wednesday 10th July.

After this deadline passes, last minute entry transfers and course changes will only be accepted on event day at registration. Please allow extra time to complete these changes. Our best advice though is to get it sorted online as described above.

Entry transfers on the day will incur a $40 transfer fee, cash preferred. Please bring along permission from the original entrant for the transfer to take place (copy of their entry registration either hard copy or on mobile phone).

Course change upgrades on the day will incur additional charges equivalent to the difference in entry fee between the courses. Course change downgrades will not be refunded in respect to entry fee difference.

All entry transfer and course changes on the day must be done at registration via the designated ‘Entry Transfer/Course Changes’ line.
