Gold Coast Marathon: A Truly Wonderful Runcation

by On Dec 6, 2017

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 Marathon, an IAAF Gold Label Road Race, is the pinnacle of road running events in Australia and during its 38-year history has distinguished itself as one of the most prestigious marathons in the world. Its famous flat, fast and scenic course located alongside the city’s renowned surf beaches and stunning broadwater plus ideal winter running conditions featuring low humidity, little wind and mild temperatures result in 60% of participants achieving personal best times each year.

This year, RunSociety is glad to have participated in this iconic event together with a group of amazing runners and get a chance to visit the city's attractions for a truly wonderful "Runcation", courtesy of Queensland Tourism, Gold Airport Marathon and Scoot.
