Run for Charity

The 40th Gold Coast Marathon will take place on Saturday 30 June – Sunday 1 July 2018 on one of the flattest, fastest and most scenic courses in the world.

There is a race for everyone to enjoy the occasion! The 2017 event was a huge success as runners enjoyed the opportunity to get outdoors, challenge themselves and raise funds for their chosen charity. Over $270,000 was raised!

The official charity for the 13th consecutive year is Cancer Council Queensland so you may wish to join its supporters to help create a cancer-free future.
