Gold Coast Airport Marathon

Run for Charity


Fundraise with Everyday Hero


Run for the GOOD TIMES and support a charity of your choice. The 39th Gold Coast Airport Marathon will take place on 1-2 July 2017 on one of the flattest, fastest and most scenic courses in the world. There is a race for everyone to enjoy the occasion! The 2016 event was a huge success as runners enjoyed the opportunity to get outdoors, challenge themselves and raise funds for their chosen charity. Nearly $400,000 was raised!

Take up the challenge in 2017 and run for a cause. The official charity for the 12th consecutive year is Cancer Council Queensland so you may wish to join its supporters to help create a cancer-free future.
