Latest Update - Course Announcement
The courses for the run festival have been decided.
Course Maps Are Now Available
In its second year we have made a few changes to the course. We have kept the multi loop course based on feedback from runners and spectators alike. We have replaced the zig zag section through Maroochydore to one that heads out to Picnic Point, eliminating the switch backs. We have retained the 10km loop for athletes to run their chosen distance on. This will give athletes and spectators the most scenic course and best possible viewing and cheering opportunities.
The Marathon will start with an out and back run over the stunning Alexandra Headlands hill (once only) into Mooloolaba and back, you will then complete 4 fast, flat and scenic laps, running past the start/finish area each time to the cheers of friends, family and spectators.
The Half Marathon is similar to the full, with entrants running over Alexandra Headlands (once only) into Mooloolaba and back and then completing 2 fast, flat and scenic laps of the 10km loop.
The 10km event is the fast, flat loop, with the 5km and the 2km participants completing a smaller loop on the same course.
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 by running the first ever Sunshine Coast Marathon & Community Run Festival.
