Raffertys Coastal Run
Lake Macquarie, Saturday 15 July 2023

You’ve got less than two weeks left to sign up for the Raffertys Coastal Run, an epic event that will push your limits but reward your efforts every kilometre with incredible changing views and terrain.

The Raffertys Coastal Run offers three awesome courses: 12km, 22km, and 36km. All distances will take you from the lakefront Raffertys Resort through the coastal Wallarah National Park and back again, on the very best trails of the area. Brace yourself for a sheer variety of terrain; there will be high cliff top trails, green rainforest patches, heathland, grassy headlands, fast open fire trail, and twisting tracks through spotted-gum coastal forest. We promise a little bit of everything on these courses.

The event centre and race start/finish is hosted out of Raffertys Resort, the lakefront resort is a hive of race-day excitement and activities. Many runners choose to book accommodation here and make things easy staying meters from the start line. There is also a 1km kids fun run around the resort and a free family orienteering activity on offer. Something to keep the whole running family happy!

The event’s tagline “Trail run from calm lake shore to rugged coastline” perfectly encapsulates the incredible journey this race offers.

Believe us when we say this isn’t one you want to miss! We hope you will come and join us for the journey on Saturday 15th July!

Thrills, Teamwork, and Triumph! The Adventure Race Event For Everyone!

Sunshine Coast Max Adventure Race

Saturday 22 July 2023

Prepare yourself for an action-packed day of fun set amongst the pine forests of Wild Horse Mountain in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

Our event caters to teams of all skill levels, with a special focus on welcoming newbies and first-timers. We want everyone to experience the joy and excitement of adventure racing!

Choose from two fantastic course options: the Novice (beginner) and the Classic distance. We’ve also prepared a special Kids Course for the little ones, ensuring that the whole family can get involved.

Which course should I choose?
The Novice Course consists of approximately 5-15km of mountain biking, 3-5km of trail running and 1-2km of kayaking. Plenty of kid/ parent teams take on the novice course. The minimum age is 8 when accompanied by an adult and 14 years if two teenagers are racing together.

The Classic Course consists of approximately 15-25km of mountain biking, 5-10km of trail running and 2-4km of kayaking.

How does it work?
Working together in teams of two you must visit each of the checkpoints in turn by navigating the course by foot, mountain bike and kayak. The course is kept secret until race day, with maps revealed to you when you collect your race bag at registration. Checkpoints should be collected in order – missed checkpoints will add to your final race time, and bonus checkpoints (if collected) will give you a time deduction.

The event has been designed to provide a family-friendly atmosphere, creating an inclusive and enjoyable experience for all. Register now and get ready for an epic day of adventure racing fun!
