Thousands from around the world will run for the good times at the 40th Gold Coast Marathon held from Saturday 30 June – Sunday 1 July 2018. To ensure the safety of participants, volunteers, spectators and road users, police controlled road closures will be in place from Paradise Point to Burleigh Heads.
The event has cemented itself as a highlight on Queensland’s major sporting calendar and has grown to become Australia’s premier road race, reinforcing the Gold Coast’s reputation as a leading sport and event destination. It is the perfect opportunity to showcase the beautiful Gold Coast to thousands of international and interstate runners and their supporters who come for the run and stay for the fun, while significantly boosting our local and state economies.
In order for the smooth running of the Gold Coast Marathon, certain roads need to be temporarily closed during the weekend.
Saturday 30 June: Roads will be closed from 3:30am and will progressively reopen as events are completed. All roads should reopen by 11am.
Sunday 1 July: Roads will be closed from 3:30am and will progressively reopen as events are completed. All roads should reopen by 2:30pm.
Local traffic can enter and exit these roads at each closure point under the direction of police and traffic controllers. However, there will be delays. If possible, we suggest you make alternative arrangements on this weekend to avoid delays and help keep traffic to a minimum.
Detailed road closure maps and a community guide will be available soon.
