Thousands from around the world will participate at the 39th annual Gold Coast Airport Marathon on Saturday, 1 and Sunday, 2 July 2017. The marathon course runs next to the Gold Coast’s surf beaches and Broadwater and has a reputation as one of the flattest and fastest courses in the world.

Join five legends of Australian marathon running who are ambassadors for the event. Sub 2:10 marathon runners Rob de Castella, Steve Moneghetti, Pat Carroll and Lee Troop, along with Australian women’s marathon record holder Benita Willis, continue their long association with one of their favourite races.

To ensure the safety of participants, volunteers, spectators and road users, some boat ramps will be closed and police controlled road closures will be in place along Seaworld Drive and surrounding streets.
