The 2017 edition of the 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon has won over this year’s runners who had nothing but praise for the new refined course that resulted in the removal of four u-turns plus the nasty hairpin corner at the finish.
It makes sense that fewer corners makes for a more enjoyable run and participants were overwhelmingly supportive of the changes with almost 60 per cent of participants claiming the new course was their favourite experience across the weekend.
“There is so much about the event that I enjoy. I do like the the new course that’s for sure and the new layout of the finish line is much better too. This year was by far my most enjoyable out of the four years in a row I have participated.” – 7 Sunshine Coast Half Marathon Finisher, 2017
Organisers are pleased to announce the course is here to stay for 2018. Stay tuned for further announcements about the event via our regular EDMs, Facebook posts and on the website in the lead up to August 19, 2018.
