The Gold Coast Marathon powered by Chery is run by Events Management Queensland, a not-for-profit organisation, and we would not be able to deliver Australia’s leading marathon without volunteers. The time and resources provided by volunteers in the lead up to and over race weekend ensures the event is a success each year. The benefits are not entirely for the event, volunteering is a great way to meet a variety of people from all walks of life and you’ll have fun while giving back to the community.

Volunteer shifts are available at both the Event Race Precinct at Southport Broadwater Parklands and the Registration Check In Centre at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre in Broadbeach.

Please note: the minimum age to volunteer is 16 years of age.
