Sunshine Coast Marathon

The Sunshine Coast Marathon in its third year running will be held on 31st August 2014. As stated by event organisers, the Sunshine Coast Marathon is one of Australia’s most popular marathon events and is set to be bigger and better this year with its great beachfront course and more participants than ever before.

No matter what your ability, whether you’re an elite athlete testing the legs and chasing down prize money, a first time marathoner nervous about making the distance or a beginner wanting to know what the fuss is all about, event organising encourage you to do your best. All profits are donated to more than 70 charities including Ronald McDonald House and The Westpac Foundation.
