ONE IN TWO RUNNERS SET A PERSONAL BEST

The 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon’s fast course and supportive atmosphere makes it a popular race choice for first time marathoners, runners wanting a Boston Qualifier (BQ) or those chasing an elusive personal best.

For a second year in a row survey results show that nearly 60% of participants clocked a personal best on the fast course.

Mother of 3, Ana Croger (pictured) unexpectedly qualified for Boston and is thrilled with her PB.

“It was completely unexpected as Sunny Coast Marathon was my last long run before another race a few weeks later” she says.

“As always the fast course, loud spectators and brilliant organisers didn’t disappoint. I’ve wanted that BQ for a very long time and if there was anywhere to do it, Sunny Coast was the place to be”
