Seaside Coastal Marathon 2017 event-rules-2017


Effective from 10/09/2017

All distances (with the exception of the 50 km, 100 km & 100 mile distances) now have a cut-off time of 8 hours. No exceptions.
(This is a very relaxed cut-off time and one of the reasons is so that we do not put added pressure on our awesome volunteers time).

Effective from 01/01/2018 (to be revised shortly)

All marathon distance races (42.195km) must have a minimum of 10 starters to go ahead. The marathon will also need to have a minimum of 7 finishers to be eligible to count as an official marathon with the Australian 100 Marathon Club as per their rules.  (“coastalfunruns” marathons are guided by and in full agreement with the rules of the Australian 100 Marathon Club)


“coastalfunruns” is a series of annual low cost, low key coastal fun running events held in South Australia and proudly supporting both Bravehearts & the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF). Our costs are already the lowest in Australia and will remain so as the EARLYBIRD price. Seven working days before each event’s start date the entry fee will increase considerably to a late entry price. This will hopefully encourage everyone to enter early to ensure a smoother event day. Finisher medals and bibs will also be ordered from the same date as the earlybird price increases. Online entries will however remain open until 4:00pm the day before each event. There will be NO on the day entries.

What this means is the following..
**If you enter early you are assured of a finisher medal with the correct distance engraved. You will also receive a pre-printed bib with your name and number. You will also only pay the low cost earlybird normal rate.
**If you enter in the last seven days you will pay an increased entry fee. You will receive a generic finisher medal without the completed distance engraved. You will also receive a pre-printed bib but your name and number will be handwritten.

This will ensure everyone goes home with a medal and they will no longer be posted out. These small changes will help to make our awesome volunteers work much easier.
