Bondi lifeguard Andrew ‘Reidy’ Reid has been announced as an ambassador for the Gold Coast Marathon to be held on 6 – 7 July.

The 39-year-old star of Bondi Rescue will be encouraging his fellow Sydneysiders as well as those from all around the world to venture to the Gold Coast to participate in one of eight races on the two-day program.

The accomplished runner, triathlete and fitness advocate hopes to inspire others to shoot for their running goals on the flat and fast course as he looks to complete 42km in under three hours for the first time on the Gold Coast.

“The Gold Coast Marathon has the perfect mix of serious and fun,” Reidy said.

“Thousands of runners vying for personal glory in a great holiday destination with a buzzing atmosphere – talk about good times!”

The world-class international marathon will attract 28,000 participants of all ages and abilities from over 50 countries across eight races including the Gold Coast Marathon, Wheelchair Marathon, ASICS Half Marathon, Wheelchair 15km, Southern Cross University 10km Run, Gold Coast Airport Fun Run, Garmin 4km Junior Dash and Garmin 2km Junior Dash.

The Gold Coast Marathon, an IAAF Gold Label Road Race, is the pinnacle of road running events in Australia and during its 40-year history has distinguished itself as one of the most prestigious marathons in the world.

Its famous flat, fast and scenic course located alongside the city’s renowned surf beaches and stunning broadwater plus ideal winter running conditions featuring low humidity, little wind and mild temperatures result in 60 percent of participants achieving personal best times each year.

Join Reidy and enter the Gold Coast Marathon.
