Gold Coast Airport Marathon

Whether you’re a professional runner or not, it should be your goal to join one of the most amazing, fun, engaging, and active marathons in the world: Gold Coast Airport Marathon, held in the first weekend of July each year.

What the Marathon Is About

The marathon has been around for so many years. In fact, in 2011 it’s going to be the on its thirty-third year. It has attracted thousands of runners from all over the world for a variety of reasons, one of which the terrain is the flattest there is in Australia. The course, moreover, takes you to some of the top premier destinations of Gold Coast, namely, Surfers Paradise, Burleigh Heads, and Broadbeach.

The marathon has various categories that attempt to cater to all types of people. Even children can participate in the event.

What to Do

The best way to make the most out of the marathon is to participate. You can sign up the registration form from the website: http://www.goldcoastmarathon.com.au/. For 2011, it will start receiving registration in April. You can run alone, with your families and friends, and even with a team. There’s also a special marathon for people who are wheelchair bound.

You may also want to look for a running club who can train with you. This marathon is one of the fastest, and because of the geography, it’s easier for first-time runners to conquer. Nevertheless, it still pays to practice. You can also arrive in Gold Coast at least a week before the marathon so you can study the trail, as well as jog some more on the beaches.

The running competitions bring about a festive mood. Thousands of spectators will be coming up the streets to cheer the people they know or support. You can be one of them too if running is not your thing. Be also entertained by Runspiration. It’s a time in the course where various performers will sing or dance just to get the runners motivated to finish the course. You can purchase a pass to Legends Motivational Carbo Lunch, which is before the marathon. You’ll get a good insight and advice from running legends.

More than 20,000 people will run and thousands more will watch. If you’re planning to join or watch the marathon, make sure you book your Gold Coast accommodation as early as possible. Do check out our website to determine the best possible options for your needs and preferences.
