Marathon brings the good times

The GC Airport Marathon revealed a new theme for 2015: Good Times.

Organisers say it reflects the event’s status as Australia’s fastest marathon, providing participants the opportunity to produce personal best times.

More than 60% of runners last year achieved personal best times, highlighting the Gold Coast as a premier holiday running destination and building on the city’s international appeal for world-class tourism offerings. “With our event producing an extremely high percentage of personal best times for runners, good times can be achieved on and off the marathon course,” Mr Watson said. “The theme cohesively Gold Coast’s famous golden sandy beaches and iconic Surfers Paradise skyline while triggering a fun, passionate and celebratory emotional connection with bright colours and a diverse range of runners. “The Gold Coast’s tagline is ‘famous for fun’ and now it is famous for our run which is an internationally acclaimed marathon.”

The 37th annual Gold Coast Airport Marathon will be held on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 July and is expected to attract more than 27,000 participants of all ages and abilities across a number of events including the marathon, wheelchair marathon, half marathon, wheelchair 15km, 10km run, 5.7km challenge and a junior dash of 4km and 2km.
