Entries Open

Feb 12, 2024

Entries have now opened for the 2024 Raffertys Coastal Run! Join us this year and find out why we love this event so much.

The course winds through the Wallarah National Park, taking you on a journey from calm lake shore to rugged coast line. You will traverse varied terrain – from bushland single track to ridgetop fire trail, coastal heath section, rock platforms and sandy beaches.

In addition to the spectacular scenery, the area’s coastline is dotted with remnants of the past. From the pier at Catherine Hill Bay, a long since abandoned timber jetty, to the old bunkers at Mine Camp road, you will be immersed in the cultural and natural history of the area. 

We think Lake Macquarie has all the elements of a top trail run destination with views that will get you through kilometre after kilometre!

Whether you are up for the 12km, 22km or 36km, its time to put this event on the calendar and start planning your Lake Macquarie weekend away!
