Organisers express “heartfeld disappointment”

Gold Coast Marathon cancelled at short notice

In a press release dated 29 June organisers of the Village Roadshow Theme Parks Gold Coast Marathon Festival announced that:

It is with the utmost regret that due to the increasing threat of COVID-19 to the community and the subsequent restrictions, including the three-day lockdown enforced by the Queensland Government, Events Management Queensland has been left with no choice but to cancel the Village Roadshow Theme Parks Gold Coast Marathon.

The ongoing health risks, impacts on workforce/volunteers, disruptions to travel and uncertainty ahead dictated drastic action to ensure there were no further threats to the health and wellbeing of participants, stakeholders and the wider Gold Coast community.

This decision has not been made lightly given the experience of the 2020 cancellation and comes with heartfelt disappointment from the team at Events Management Queensland.
