About 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon & Community Run Festival
The 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon & Community Run Festival aims to bring together 10,000 runners of all ages and abilities on Sunday August 25 in a celebration of fun, health and community awareness.
The festival celebrates its 5th year in 2016 and plans to not only double the number of competitors but also the funds contributed to several worthy community groups including the event’s major beneficiary Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Choose from 2km, 5km, 10km, half or full marathon distances and enjoy the spectacular flat, fast and scenic course that runs along side some of the Sunshine Coast’s best beaches. Runners can also choose to support one of 700 charities through an Everyday Hero account. In 2012 Sunshine Coast athletes helped raise $150,000 for worthwhile causes.
Known for its great atmosphere and stunning winter weather, the 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon multi-loop course provides heaps of great spectator spots and race day activities including markets for the whole family to enjoy.
The spectator-friendly course with its stunning natural backdrop will ensure a must-do event with local, interstate and international runners alike. Avoid the disappointment, enter early and be part of history.
