The Sunshine Coast Marathon features marathon, half marathon, 10km, 5km and 2km distance events starting at Alexandra Headlands Surf Club.

This community based running festival is ideal for families and with the range of distances on offer, there's something for everyone. A member of the Association of International Marathons & Road Races (AIMS), the 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon and Community Running Festival is one of the most-loved running festivals in Australia.

Since its inception the 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon has raised over $1.3 million for charity and community groups. Located on the stunning Sunshine Coast, Queensland an hour’s drive north of Brisbane this not-for-profit event has been timed to make the most of the ideal Queensland winter running conditions.

Blue skies, low humidity and mild temperatures combined with a flat course always enable fast times. The course record currently stands at 2:18:30 set by Ethiopian, Samuel Woldemanuel in 2015. Event distances include the Marathon, Half Marathon, 10km, 5km and the 2km. Each road race follows the stunning coastline of Alexandra Headlands with white sandy beaches and spectacular vantage points alongside the ocean.

The Half Marathon is a one loop course with Marathon entrants completing a multi loop course (1 x 21km + 2 x 10.5km’s) making the most of the on-course entertainment and crowds of spectators before a red carpet ‘hero’ finish.
