The 2024 Event Program will be available 1-2 weeks prior to the event. The 2023 Event Program is available for reference.
The event schedule will be confirmed in the official event program released two weeks before race day. For purposes of planning, below is the proposed schedule for Raffertys Coastal Run. Any last minute changes will be included in the Event Program and updated here prior to event day.
You will need to carry a minimum 500ml water bottle or hydration pack (or similar) to refill at the Aid Stations out on course. There will be NO CUPS at the aid stations. No other mandatory gear is required however we recommend all runners carry a mobile phone, basic first aid supplies and clothing to suit race day conditions.
All runners will collect their race bib at the Registration Tent either the evening before or on the morning of the event. Check the event program for registration opening hours.
You will need to know your race number to collect your race bib, this will be emailed out after online entries close.
Race bibs are mandatory for all distances and should be worn on your front at all times. If you have any concerns please speak to one of our friendly staff when collecting your race bib.

safety on course
Please be aware you will be running on public trails and roads open to other traffic. Event staff and volunteers will be present to assist at road junctions and crossings but it is your responsibility to lookout for any pedestrians or vehicles. Please stay to the left hand side of roads and trails in public areas. Please obey all event, road and directional signage and always stay on the marked trails.
First aid teams will be located around the course. If you or another runner need first aid while out on course please make your way to the next marshal or aid station. If this is not possible please phone the emergency number on the back of your race bib.
Runners are expected to assist competitors who have injured themselves. If you come across an injured runner, provide assistance and ask a fellow runner to inform race officials at the next intersection, please make sure you inform race officials of the injured runner’s race bib number. Times will be adjusted to compensate for any time lost while helping fellow runners.
