It’s the Gold Coast’s biggest running festival! GC50 Run Festival is back in December, arriving simultaneously with summer for a thrilling multi-distance run across the Gold Coast. Held each year, GC50 attracts runners from all over Australia, boasting perfect running conditions, a lively atmosphere and some of the best scenery in Queensland Australia.
Just a stone’s throw from our Surfers Paradise family accommodation, GC50 Run Festival 2019 will start and finish in Broadbeach Gold Coast, offering a variety of easygoing and challenging distances for all ages and fitness levels to take part in. Distances will include 15km, 30km and 50km round circuits through Burleigh Heads, Currumbin, Coolangatta and more, scattered with aid and water stations and a fantastic crowd atmosphere to cheer on each participant.
There will be fun group relay events to join in with friends and family, along with short 5km and 1km events for kids and teens. All distances will provide a participant certificate and finishers medal, with first second and third-place trophies and medals for both male and female categories. After each run, there will be food vendors and live entertainment to enjoy in Broadbeach!
The Gold Coast is popular among runners for its flat running conditions next to the ocean, offering Queensland’s most breathtaking beaches to see along the way. GC50 Gold Coast is also ideally held each summer, which provides the perfect dry climate for running with little wind resistance. If you’re keen to take on a personal challenge before the New Year, GC50 Run Festival is the ultimate event!
