Event Wrap Up

Jul 17, 2023

That’s a wrap for the Raffertys Coastal Run 2023!

Congratulations to all who took on the Raffertys Coastal Run challenge and joined us for the journey from calm lake shore to rugged coastline. We hope you’re still riding high on that sense of accomplishment after conquering the course last Saturday!

Weather conditions for this event has been a bit of a sore spot for us in the past, but Mother Nature was clearly in a generous mood. Runners were greeted with a glorious, sunny day making it hard to believe we are mid-winter; and favourable tides set the scene for a perfect coastal trail run race.
The low tide’s packed sand certainly helped runners in the 36km course, while the overall drier conditions ensured the fire trails were set for faster running than we’ve seen in previous editions of the Raffertys Coastal Run.

Podium places across all distances were tight! In the 36 km, Josef Mcgrath backed up his February win slicing an impressive 16 minutes off his time, and Amelia Kerr was first across the line in the women with a very slick 3:30hr time. Geoff Arnold and Sarah Whitley rulers of the 22 km kingdom; and Tim Manuel and Monika Ludriks, masters of the in the 12 km realm.

Big congratulations to these runners and all other category winners and finishers – full results are available online, so you can brag about your achievements with cold, hard data!

We can’t let the credits roll without acknowledging our amazing event sponsors. Raffertys Resort, Lake Macquarie City Council, Tarkine, Tailwind Nutrition Australia and Mountain Culture Beer Co. Your support and partnership played a vital role in making this event such an enjoyable day for all.

And now, a standing ovation for our incredible team of volunteers! You wonderful beings gave your time, effort and boundless enthusiasm. We are so grateful for your selfless support.

To relive the magical moments, the stunning photos captured by the team at Outer Image are now available HERE.

We hope to see you all again for the next instalment of Raffertys Coastal Run in July 2024
