Community


For 2019, profits will go toward improvements to recreational facilities for families and children in Taieri Mouth (i.e. tennis court upgrade, new picnic tables).

Take a group of friends throw in a few drinks and come up with a idea for a community fundraiser.

Use a bit of old fashion kiwi attitude “we can do it” and you have the Coastal Classic.

We wish to thank Rotary Club of Milton for their tremendous donation to purchase 50 new safety vests for
all our marshalls and volunteers on Race Day.

For 2018, profits will go toward upgrading emergency infrastructures for the Taieri Mouth community

In association with the Taieri Mouth Amenities Society the organisers of  The Coastal Classic have contributed to the following community projects in past years.
