Raffertys Coastal Run

Call for Volunteers

We are still in need for some volunteers for Raffertys Coastal Run. All volunteers at the event earn themselves a free entry into Raffertys Coastal Run in 2018 or can be used for a free entry into the Coastal Classic or Jabulani Challenge.

If you have your partner or a friend coming along to cheer you on encourage them to volunteer so they can join in the fun next time or, even better, you can use the free entry they receive for helping out yourself. Volunteers could be assisting with course marshalling, registration, handing out finishers medals or a variety of other tasks.

Volunteers at the Raffertys Coastal Run will receive lunch, a free volunteer t-shirt and cap; and will be provided with a snack bag to keep you going during the day.

You can register as a volunteer via this link HERE.

A range of accommodation options are available meaning you can easily bring the family along, and it is nice to know they will be at the Finish line cheering you home!

Price is $40 for adults, $10 for children under 12, menu available HERE.
