Last Minute Event Information

5th July 2018  

Raffertys Coastal Run

Saturday 7th July 2018

Lake Macquarie, NSW

If you haven’t had a look through the official Event Program yet you definitely should do so before event day. It contains all the information you need to know about the day, what time to arrive, how to get there, where the aid stations are located and what is available at the aid stations. All these questions plus more are available in the Event Program so click on the link below to get in the know.

One question you are probably still working out is ‘How am I going to get there?’ While many will drive please be aware that parking is limited at Raffertys Resort. If you can team up with some fellow runners and carpool to the event we strongly encourage you to do so.

If you are one of the smart ones and staying at Raffertys Resort to make a weekend of the event, why not take advantage of registration opening on Friday night from 5pm to 8pm so can avoid the queues on race morning.

We look forward to seeing you all at the event on Saturday.

Transfers & Course Changes

Online entry transfers and course changes have closed, last minute transfers and course changes can only be done on race morning at registration.

Entry Transfers

The new runner must present the original runners entry confirmation (hard copy or digital) thereby allowing the transfer of entry to the new runner. You will be required to complete an Entry Transfer form and we suggest you download, print and pre-fill the form on the link below to bring along and save time. Entry transfers at registration will incur a $20 admin fee, cash preferred. Follow the sign to the designated line at registration for Entry Transfers/Course Changes. Allow extra time for this process to occur. Exchange of funds for race entry fees will be a private transaction between the two runners.


Course Changes

Follow the sign to the designated line at registration for Entry Transfers/Course Changes. You do NOT need to line up and collect your original course distance race number prior to attending the Entry Transfers/Course Changes line as you will be allocated a new race number. Course upgrades at registration will incur a charge of the difference in entry fee, cash preferred. No refunds are provided for course downgrades.

If you are registered for the Triple Trail Challenge and do NOT intend to run the 36km event (thereby removing yourself from eligibility in this challenge) and downgrade to the 12km or 22km event, you MUST also complete a Course Change at the Entry Transfers/Course Changes line at registration.

Please note that failure to complete this change could see you directed along your original course distance by staff and event marshals along the route.


Race Day Merchandise

Online pre-orders for the limited edition Raffertys Coastal Run 2018 merchandise have now closed. Please be aware that no event merchandise will be for sale at the event. If you scored yourself some merch then simply head to the ThermTech stall after you’ve registered (and collected your race bib) to pick merchandise up.

Our friends at ThermaTech will also have a range of other merchandise for sale on race day. All the ThermaTech gear will be 30% off RRP so it’s a good chance to stock up on high quality activewear and outdoor clothing as well as accessories including athletic supports, running belts, hydration belts and Body Glide products.

We would like to welcome our new footware partner Altra. Altra are the only shoe company to provide a cushioned Zero Drop™ platform and FootShape™ toe box, which means this innovative combo promotes low-impact technique and allows your feet to remain in a natural, relaxed position across every terrain.

Located next to the ThermaTech stall you’ll have the opportunity to check out some of the Altra shoe range including the men’s and women’s Escalante, Superior 3.5 and Lone Peak 3.5 styles. Orders for other styles can be taken.
