The annual Gold Coast Marathon will soon be upon us, and this winter’s event looks sure to be bigger than ever. If you would like to take part in this fun and rewarding event with thousands of others, cheer on a family member or just sit back and enjoy the excitement in the glorious Gold Coast sunshine, Deville luxury apartments Main Beach are just a stone’s throw from all the action.
Founded in the early 80s to encourage locals to get active, the marathon now attracts an impressive 23,000 professional runners, fundraisers and fun-runners from around the globe every year. It is not surprising that the event has become so popular. The 42km marathon course meanders past some of the region’s most spectacular natural attractions, including the glittering Broadwater and the magnificent white sands of Surfers Paradise Beach. Thanks to the flat streets of the Gold Coast and the dry, non-humid Queensland climate in July, it’s also considered one of the fastest and least challenging courses in the world, so it’s just as perfect for pros who want to achieve their best yet time as it is for absolute beginners.
Runners can take their pick from selection of events, including the full 42km marathon, the half marathon, the wheelchair marathon and the 5km challenge. All ages can get involved and it’s up to you whether you walk or run!
If you want to raise awareness for a cause that’s close to your heart, achieve a lifelong ambition or just step up your own personal fitness, applications for the 2012 Marathon in July are now open. Our soothing luxury spa will be waiting for you once you’ve run your distance!
