“Running the Gold Coast Airport Marathon feels like I am running in a paradise for runners! The route is very scenic and clean, the race atmosphere is amazing with the local residents cheering for the runners. It is definitely a lot of fun running on the Gold Coast with its beautiful scenery and pleasant weather. No wonder so many runners achieve their personal best here!”

“Due to one thing and another, my participation at Gold Coast Airport Marathon was rather last-minute. My family and I didn’t expect much, but after staying for 8 days in the city, we returned to Jakarta refreshed! We primarily came for the run, but the overall Gold Coast experience was indeed fun.”

“I was very happy to run the 2014 Gold Coast Airport Marathon where I ran my personal best! I even exceeded the goal I set for myself! The event was fantastic, very well organized and the feeling was awesome with the crowd support (it is truly “runspiration”). I was happy to meet fellow Indonesians living in Australia who ran the marathon too!”
