Event Brief

Welcome to the distance running challenge held in conjunction with Unisport Australia and the Gold Coast Marathon!

Do you have dreams of running along the sandy and sunny shores of the Gold Coast? Well now you can take those dreams a step further by participating in the Gold Coast Virtual Marathon and associated events.
