The Gold Coast Marathon – Queensland’s Biggest Marathon
The Gold Coast Marathon has been held on the Gold Coast since 1979, and has continued to be one of the leading annual marathons in Australia for both beginner and veteran runners. Strengthened by the Gold Coast’s ideal weather conditions and offering a flat circuit with world-famous white beaches to see along the shorefront, this popular Australian marathon is the perfect opportunity to test endurance, set a personal challenge and, at the same time, experience one of the most exciting holiday destinations in the country.
Over 28,000 people are expected to be on the Gold Coast for the 2019 Gold Coast Marathon, which marks its momentous 41st event. The Gold Coast Marathon is open to all ages and abilities, and sees a diverse mixture of runners from more than 50 countries around the world – so there’s no excuse not to get inspired for a running distance that matches your capability.
The main event, the 42km Gold Coast Marathon, begins at Southport and continues south to Burleigh Heads – passing Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach along the way – before returning back up the coastline and finishing at Southport. The circuit offers a cut-off of almost seven hours with dedicated running conditions – flat circuit, low humidity and little wind – that guarantees each participant their personal best.
As well as the main marathon, the family-friendly Gold Coast Marathon offers a 21km Half Marathon, 10km Run, 5.7km Fun Run and a 4km Junior Dash for ages 5 to 14 – all taking place over an appropriate two-day period. During the event, main roads will be closed off, with thousands of spectators lining the streets to cheer and show their support! Each finisher will get the chance to be rewarded with a commemorative Gold Coast Marathon medal, shirt and certificate.
This July, head to the Gold Coast to take part or soak up the action from the sideline. After a hugely successful 2018 event, the 41st Gold Coast Marathon is all set to be another blast with a huge family-friendly atmosphere and lots to keep everyone entertained over the two-day weekend, including the Gold Coast’s many beaches, shopping centres and attractions.
Invite friends and mark your calendars now for July 6 and 7 on the Gold Coast!
