  • This event has passed.

The Sunshine Coast Marathon & Community Run Festival is a member of the Association of International Marathons & Road Races (AIMS) and is one of the most-loved running festivals in Australia.  Since its inception, the Sunshine Coast Marathon has raised over $1.6 million for charity and community groups.

Located on the stunning Sunshine Coast, Queensland an hour’s drive north of Brisbane this event has been timed to make the most of the ideal Queensland winter running conditions. Blue skies, low humidity and mild temperatures combined with a flat course always enable fast times.

Event distances include the Marathon, Half Marathon, 10km, 5km and the 2km. Each road race follows the stunning coastline of Alexandra Headland with white sandy beaches and spectacular vantage points alongside the ocean. The Half Marathon is a one-loop course with Marathon entrants completing a multi-loop course (1 x 21km + 2 x 10.5km’s) making the most of the on-course entertainment and crowds of spectators before a red carpet ‘hero’ finish.

With a distance to suit every ability and age group, this community-focused, world-class athletic event caters to all those wanting to take part, including families and those with both physical and intellectual disabilities.

The 2km event allows parents with prams and wheelchair entrants to take part and enjoy the festival atmosphere. Race start times are scheduled to allow for parents to run the longer distances and then return in time to run with the kids and enjoy all the free fun in the family entertainment precinct.
