ASICS Gold Coast Marathon Course

2024 ASICS Gold Coast Marathon – AIMS Certified

Course changes to the Gold Coast Marathon presented by ASICS – Sunday 7 July 2024:

  • A new look start line 600m south of the previous start located at the southern end of Southport Broadwater Parklands
  • After running over the Sundale Bridge into Main Beach participants enter the first new section of the course heading northbound up Sea World Drive and returning south at Sea World.
  • Participants continue southbound running alongside the iconic Gold Coast beaches and into Surfers Paradise as per previous years.
  • To avoid tight sections and ensure runner comfort the course will enter another new section, past Q1 and across the tram tracks out to the Gold Coast Highway via Clifford Street.
  • Participants reconnect to the coastal roads via Fern Street, travelling through Broadbeach on Old Burleigh Road.
  • To ensure plenty of road width the course heads down Alexandra Avenue and back onto the Gold Coast Highway. Participants then head down to Mermaid Beach coming coming back east at Seashell Avenue and turning onto Albatross Avenue.
  • The course will see a new southern turn point to head north at Miami to avoid G:Link construction along the Gold Coast Highway.
  • Participants then head north along the coastal roads with one way access along Hedges Avenue providing more space for an enjoyable run.
  • Continuing north participants will pass through Broadbeach, Surfers Paradise and Main Beach and back onto Sundale Bridge.
  • Running alongside the beautiful Broadwater participants will complete a northern turn point in Runaway Bay and head south for the finish line.
  • Participants will turn into the finish chute flanked by excited well-wishers and pass under the 250m to go bridge before rounding the corner to reach the iconic Gold Coast Marathon blue carpet and finish line.
