Event Overview

The C.ex Group Coffs Harbour Running Festival is organised by the Rotary Club of Coffs Harbour.

The 11th annual event will be held on: Sunday 10th September 2023.

The community event for people of all ages and abilities consists of the Beachside Radiology 21.1km Half Marathon, Baringa Private Hospital 10km, Southern Cross University 5km Fun Run/Walk and the Key Employment  3km Fun Run/Walk.

In 2023, we we be having the Rotary Teams Challenge where randomly drawn teams if 8 can donate 5 x $1,000 to registered local children’s charities of their choice.

The Coffs Coast Kia Nyami and Jaanybarr of the Creek involves runners completing the 10km, then the 21.1km and finally the 5km to make a total distance of 36.1km.

Held on a bush trail on the Coffs Creek walkway, the flat, shady courses are ideal for running. The picturesque track hugs the beautiful Coffs Creek and takes runners over floating boardwalks, through swamp forests of mangrove, casuarina and paperbark trees from the centre of Coffs Harbour to the coast and back.

All proceeds from the event go to local Rotary charities including Life Education, Early Connections, Can Do Cancer Trust and Mid North Coast Disabled Surfers Association.
