The 34th Gold Coast Marathon is just a few months away and this year’s race promises to be the biggest yet. If you’re planning to participate in this challenging but rewarding day along with thousands of others, Ocean Royale Broadbeach holiday resort is the perfect base, only a stone’s throw from all the action.
The yearly marathon attracts an impressive average of 23,000 participants every year, and among them are world renowned athletes, charity fundraisers and fun-runners of all ages. It is easy to see why the Gold Coast’s premier sporting event has become so popular with people all over the world. The 42km course passes some of Queensland’s most iconic attractions, including spectacular white beaches, the serene Southport Broadwater and the gleaming, high rise apartments and office blocks of Surfers Paradise. Thanks to its flat terrain and the non-humid, pleasantly warm July climate, it’s also thought of as one of the most enjoyable, least challenging events of its kind.
Participants can apply for the full 42km marathon, the 21 km half marathon, the wheelchair marathon or the 5km challenge, among other races. Every age group can get involved and you choose whether you walk or run your distance!
