The marathon is held in August each year to make the most out of the stunning Queensland winters. Runners can choose from a 5K, 10K, half marathon, full marathon, or a 2k for those in wheelchairs, kids, and families. All the road races take you through the breathtaking coastline that Alexandra Headland is known for, boasting white sand beaches and stunning vantage points by the sea. The half marathon features a single loop circuit, while the full marathon involves a multi-loop circuit.

The Sunshine Coast Marathon & Community Run Festival is an excellent opportunity to book a winter holiday while making a difference. There’s something for everyone involved, including varying distances for people of all ages and abilities, as well as music, family entertainment, great food, and a sports expo.

Each year, thousands of runners from near and far join in on one of the best marathons in Australia while raising money for dozens of charities and beneficiaries. For spectators, there are several vantage points from where you can enjoy views of the marathon. These include Fisherman’s Road Markets, the Bradman River House Café, and plenty of other stations revolving around live music, picnics, and more.

The event is part of the Association of International Marathons and Road Races. Because of its inclusive nature, allowing intellectual and physical disabilities participants has become a heart-warming marathon for many. The Ronald McDonald House Charities is a primary beneficiary as they provide accommodation and services for children who are seriously ill – together with their families.
