ABOUT RAFFERTYS COASTAL RUN
If trail running is your passion and you are looking for a family friendly event offering trails with beautiful coastal views and a variety of terrain, you’ve come to the right place. You will find all this plus more at Raffertys Coastal Run.
The event is hosted from the magnificent Raffertys Resort on the shores of beautiful Lake Macquarie. Nestled amongst beaches and bush on the quiet bay of Cams Wharf, the self catering resort offers visitors an opportunity to experience 38 acres of pure relaxation and rejuvenation – just 90 minutes north of Sydney. It provides the perfect backdrop to a weekend of running and activities for the whole family.
12KM, 22KM, 36KM COURSES
MULTIPLE RUNNING DISTANCES
On offer are three trail running course distances – 12km, 22km and 36km 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. The terrain is varied – bushland single track, fire trail, coastal tracks, rock platforms and beach running all feature to challenge and excite the most discerning of trail runners.
The 36km Raffertys course rivals the challenge and sheer beauty of the Coastal Classic. Running along these trails feels like you are on a remote coastline, it is simply spectacular. When the word gets out, I’m expecting this event to match the popularity of the Coastal Classic, it has all the elements of being a truly iconic trail run
