Gold Coast Marathon presented by ASICS medal designs inspired by the beauty of Yugambeh Country, where the land meets the sea.

Aboriginal Artist, Daisy Hill

The finisher’s medals for the 2024 Gold Coast Marathon presented by ASICS have been revealed, featuring a design by Aboriginal Artist, Daisy Hill.

Daisy Hill, a proud Muruwari woman and Contemporary Aboriginal Artist, grew up living between the ocean and hinterland, and draws inspiration for her art from the beautiful environment of Yugambeh.

Daisy says the artwork design was created to celebrate movement, resilience, determination and the unity found in shared dreams – the spirit of the Gold Coast Marathon.

She explains the essence of the design is to honour coming together for the event as many people with one dream. Together, there is a shared purpose to have fun, compete, inspire one another and make lifelong memories together.

And taking her involvement in this year’s event to the next level, Daisy will also compete in the half marathon this year for the first time.  She has pledged proceeds from her fundraising to the Indigenous Marathon Foundation.

“Completing a marathon is a significant undertaking that will leave a lasting imprint on one’s life,” Daisy said.

“I hope each finisher and participant enjoys the essence and spirit of my artwork design as a reminder of the strength, resilience and determination they each hold within.”

The Gold Coast Marathon presented by ASICS, the Gold Coast Half Marathon and Southern Cross University 10km run are currently at capacity however, there is still an opportunity to be a part of the action and enter the CPL Wheelchair Marathon and 10km Wheelchair event, the Gold Coast Airport 5km Run, the Gold Coast Bulletin 2km or 4km Junior Dash or the 4km Wheelchair race.
