A big sunny welcome

Love running? Then stride into the Sunshine Coast for your next race. Events centred around health and fitness are in the DNA of the Sunshine Coast. In fact, we have an event for every pace, which is why we are delighted to partner with the 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon in 2018.

Whether you plan on walking the scenic coastal course or you are an elite competitor vying for the prize money, we look forward to welcoming you to the Sunshine Coast!

We think our patch here is the ultimate holiday destination and offers a unique blend of relaxed beach lifestyle, hinterland charm and bucket-list experiences.  The Sunshine Coast is just one hour north of Brisbane.

From the moment you arrive for the marathon and feel the sunshine on your skin; whether it is digging your toes into the golden sand at one of our many pristine beaches, breathing the clean hinterland air or sampling our fresh local food, you’ll begin to feel different… naturally refreshed, revitalised and relaxed!

Accommodation on the Sunshine Coast is renowned around the world for its superb quality, winning locations and incredible variety.  If you wish to stay close to the marathon hub there is a variety of accommodation options on the Mooloolaba, Alexandra Headlands or Maroochydore beachfronts.  Alternatively, there is a wide selection of accommodation from camping to five-star luxury across the entire region.

After the race, find your own patch of sand to soak up some rays, relax with an indulgent massage and tuck into a celebratory meal of fresh local seafood – you’ll have earned it!

While here, we invite you to make time to explore the region’s attractions, or simply put your feet up and relax. For more travel information and activity ideas in and around the Sunshine Coast visit us now or please click here for the Sunshine Coast Official Visitor and Event Guide.
