Spectators and Entertainment

The buzz and excitement of Australia’s leading marathon is enhanced by supporters and entertainers lining the Gold Coast streets from Runaway Bay to Burleigh Heads encouraging thousands of runners to achieve their goal.

Not running this year? Still come to the course to enjoy good times and soak up the thriving atmosphere with live local entertainment at various vantage points along the 42.195 kilometre course.

Grab some breakfast at one of the cafes and clubs on course for the energy you’ll need to cheer to your heart’s content! Decorate your house or business, capture your special moments by tagging your spectator photos to social media with #GCM24. You can even follow your friend or family member running via our Gold Coast Marathon App!

Further spectator information will be available closer to the event.
