Gold Coast Runaway Bay Marathon

Runaway Bay, Gold Coast Area

10 June 2018 - 

Indicative Rate * AU$104 to AU$130

A boutique marathon of six plus laps of a 6.25 kilometres loop surrounding the award winning Gold Coast Sports Super Centre.

The event is electronically timed and the course is measured to AIMS standard and listed with the IAAF. The course is flat and traffic free and is sure to be fast.

The marathon will be conducted simultaneously with the Gold Coast 100 kilometre super marathon which also hosts the National 100 kilometre championships on behalf of Athletics Australia and Australian Ultra Runners Association Inc.

This being the case, there is no pressure to have a cutoff time of less than 10 hours or so.

The Sports Super Centre is located in the northern Gold Coast and is just one hour from the Brisbane and Gold Coast international airports.

The Gold Coast is Australia's premier destination and theme parks are no more than 15 minutes away.

Accommodation is available in abundance in the area surrounding the race precinct.

Australian marathon legend Steve Moneghetti is the Race Patron and will be in attendance.

Kirra

Kirra Beach, Gold Coast Area
There's variations on what the word Kirra actually means, but some believe Queensland Aborigines named it after a boomerang. Which makes sense as Kirra wraps evocatively around the bend separating Coolangatta and Kirra beaches and in front of Kirra Hill.

Currumbin Valley

Currumbin Valley, Gold Coast Area
Heading into the Currumbin Valley is a little like entering an Aladdin's Cave of adventure. From the coastline, head southwest into another world along Currumbin Creek Road which leads to Tomewin Mountain Road winding up to Tomewin Mountain.

The southern Gold Coast's famous sandy beaches and world-class surf breaks conclude at Coolangatta, renowned for its casual beach-side culture. Spend the day surfing, SUP or swimming with the locals at Coolangatta, Greenmount, Duranbah, Palm Beach and into southern Rainbow Bay.

Snapper Rocks is a small rocky outcrop on the northern side of Point Danger at the southern end of Rainbow Bay on the Gold Coast.

Nine Mile Reef Dive Site

Coolangatta, Gold Coast Area
Free Entry
Nine Mile Reef, off Tweed Heads, has a reputation among locals as being a “sharky” spot. All year long, a good population of wobbegongs call the reef home, but are joined by leopard sharks in summer and grey nurse sharks in winter.

Currumbin Waters

Currumbin Waters, Gold Coast Area
Currumbin is an inspiring beachfront community where the epic Currumbin Creek waterway links to the pristine rainforest mountains of the region when heading west. Currumbin Creek and the Alley, the entrance to the ocean, offer a protected and patrolled haven for all kinds of active water sports, particularly stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking.

Tugun

Tugun, Gold Coast Area
Just when you thought the Gold Coast couldn't get any more relaxed you arrive over the hill and into Tugun. This southern Gold Coast suburb is so laid-back that locals fondly call her Tugz (pronounced choog-s) while ancient Aborigines referred to Tugun as a place of "breaking waves".
