Participants to benefit from sunrise starts

Gold Coast anticipates 20,000 runners

Village Roadshow Theme Parks Gold Coast Marathon
Sat 2 July 2022


This year’s Village Road Show Theme Parks Gold Coast Marathon will be the largest mass-participation event in Australia this year and since COVID-19 decimated the event and festival industry across the nation more than two years ago.

Events Management Queensland CEO, Cameron Hart said the organisation had taken the time over the last couple of years to review the event operations and introduced a two-day program that starts at 06.00 each day kicking off with half marathon on Saturday and full marathon on Sunday 3 July.

“The benefits of the earlier starts will see runners starting off just before sunrise each day and experiencing the cooler temperatures of early mornings, which should see fast times and lots of personal best results.”

Mr Hart said they were anticipating over 20,000 runners this year for an event that would be a fitting celebration of the return of community and mass participation events.
