Celebrate the special 40th edition of the Gold Coast Marathon and run for the good times on Saturday 30 June – Sunday 1 July 2018 on the beautiful Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia.

The world class international marathon will attract 25,000 participants of all ages and abilities from over 50 countries across eight races including the Gold Coast Marathon, Wheelchair Marathon, ASICS Half Marathon, Wheelchair 15km, Southern Cross University 10km Run, Gold Coast Airport 5.7km Challenge, 4km Junior Dash and 2km Junior Dash.

The Gold Coast Marathon, an IAAF Gold Label Road Race, is the pinnacle of road running events in Australia and during its 39-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.

@ov3rrid3 Apparently this is the course to get your best pb because of how flat it is. You can easily run below 2 hours. :-)

I have started training for my first full marathon at GCM 2018, but I haven't registered or made my bookings yet because it's all subject to my wife's and my work commitments.

All the best for your training! Hope to see more participants chime in here.

Should try and do it soon since registration is already open for about 2 months...Then again there are still slots available (though this is supposedly one of the more popular runs) so I guess there should still be good accommodation spots near the area...

The slots would be available even till quite late into the registration period... however accommodation might be snatched up pretty fast...
