Exciting new course, same flat and fast race.
The 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon is known for many things including its scenic course that's not only spectator friendly but flat and fast. In its third year we have made exciting changes to the course, working hard with Main Road, Sunshine Coast Regional Council, the police, competitors and of course residents and businesses.
In 2014 we have been able to extend the course which will give athletes and spectators the most scenic course and best possible viewing and cheering opportunities.
The 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon will start with an out and back run over the stunning Alexandra Headland hill (once only) into Mooloolaba and back, you will then complete three fast, flat and scenic laps, running past the start/finish area each time to the cheers of friends, family and spectators.
The McDonald's Half Marathon is similar to the full, with entrants running over Alexandra Headland hill (once only) into Mooloolaba and back and then completing a SINGLE fast, flat and scenic lap out towards Maroochydore River bridge and back to the Alex Surf Club finish chute.
The Westpac 10km event is a fast, flat loop, with the Love & Partners 5km and the Queensland Government 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.
