Gold Coast is one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations known for its sunshine, golden surf beaches, beautiful broadwater, popular restaurants and cafes, exciting theme parks and accommodation for all budgets. The Gold Coast Airport Marathon is Australia’s premier road race and was the first marathon in the country to hold an International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) Road Race Gold Label. It is also Singaporeans’ favourite overseas marathon and here are some reasons why:

Run/Achieve your personal best at a scenic course

The marathon course runs next to the Gold Coast’s surf beaches and the Broadwater and has a reputation as one of the flattest and fastest courses in the world. The weather conditions in July on the Gold Coast are great for running. There is low humidity, little or no wind in the morning and mild temperatures. It is ideal for Singaporean runners who are striving for a personal best time.

Spectator support equals ‘Runspiration’

The Gold Coast Airport marathon is known for its large, enthusiastic crowd support. Their loud and inspiring cheers provide “Runspiration” to many runners. Be inspired and motivated throughout the race as the supporters cheer you on through to the finish line!
