Whether you’re a newbie to distanced running or a seasoned athlete, there’s an event for all ages and abilities at the annual Gold Coast Marathon. If you haven’t checked them out yet, here is every event to choose from!

  • Village Roadshow Theme Parks Gold Coast Marathon (42km)

Just make sure to register your entry before June 4.

Not a runner? Then come along anyway to cheer on the participants and soak up the fun atmosphere.

Of course, each event will offer flat running conditions (passing the Gold Coast’s beautiful beaches) plus aid stations to make use of.

And if you make it past the finish line, you’ll be awarded a medal, shirt (cap for Junior Dash runners), towel (for Marathon participants) and official Gold Coast Marathon certificate!
