FAQ

When will entries open?

Entries will open online in February and will close on Friday 4 June 2021.

What has changed in the 2021 race weekend schedule?

The biggest changes are the moving of the ASICS Half Marathon to start at 6am on Saturday morning, and the Village Roadshow Theme Parks Gold Coast Marathon to a 6am start on Sunday morning as outlined in the 2021 Race Weekend Schedule. The Southern Cross University 10km Run will be on Sunday.

Why has the race weekend schedule changed?

The previous race weekend schedule was becoming problematic with lots of congestion caused by having our two biggest events on the one day. By giving the ASICS Half Marathon prominence on Saturday, we can overcome issues caused by congestion and start and finish the marathon in cooler temperatures.

Will there be COVID safe regulations at the 2021 event?

It is anticipated there will be some COVID restrictions in play, and spreading the crowds over two days will assist in making the 2021 event COVID safe.

Can I enter two events?

Yes you can. We will have a number of combination events available

Saturday – Gold Coast Airport 5km Fun Run, Sunday  Southern Cross University 10km Run

When can I get more information such as Entry Fees, Check-in centres, Courses, and teams?

The details will be released in February 2021.

Why are you delaying providing further details?

Having experienced the uncertainties of 2020, we want to be confident in providing the most accurate information we can in a timely manner. We believe that waiting until after the holiday season has finished, we will have better information from health authorities to plan our 2021 event to meet any COVID restrictions in play.
