2011 Gold Coast Airport Marathon

Want to get active on the Gold Coast? The annual Gold Coast Airport Marathon is just around the corner. And if you’ve always had an itch to don your running shoes and hit the pavement, there’s no better place in Australia (dare we say the world) to make it happen.

Held on the first Sunday in July, the marathon attracts 23,000 runners in all shapes, sizes and abilities, from first timers to the finest athletes. It’s the flattest – and fastest – course in the country, held in beautiful moderate conditions, and taking in glorious scenery. Cruise past the striking Gold Coast skyline, and the spectacular golden sands and rolling surf of the Pacific Ocean surf beaches and Broadwater. Pace yourself with your choice of a Marathon, a Half Marathon, a 10km Run, a 5km Challenge and for the kids, there are even Junior Dash races. Thousands of spectators line the course to cheer everyone home, and roving musicians and entertainers add to the festival atmosphere. If all of that’s not enough to get you training, there’s also a nice pot of prize money on offer.

Before the event, why not visit the Asics Sport & Leisure Expo at the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre? Also on is the Legends Motivational Lunch held annually and attracting Australian running legends such as Rob de Castella, Steve Moneghetti and Lee Troop.

And after all that activity, head back to your luxurious Gold Coast accommodation to unwind in first class surroundings with top notch facilities.

If you’re planning to get in on the Marathon action, don’t delay booking your accommodation. To see just what’s on offer, visit our site or give us a call today
