Mark your calendars for the EVA Air Sunshine Coast Marathon and Community Run Festival, happening from August 9th to 11th, 2024. This much-loved running festival is a proud member of the Association of International Marathons and Road Races (AIMS) and has become a highlight on Australia's athletic calendar. Since its inception, the Sunshine Coast Marathon has raised over AUD 1.6 million for charity and community groups, embodying a true spirit of community and philanthropy.

Perfect Running Conditions

Set against the stunning backdrop of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, this event is perfectly timed to take advantage of the region’s ideal winter running conditions. Runners can look forward to clear blue skies, low humidity, and mild temperatures, which combined with the flat course, make for consistently fast times and a truly enjoyable race experience.

The EVA Air Sunshine Coast Marathon offers a variety of race distances to cater to all abilities and age groups:

  • Marathon: Challenge yourself with the full marathon and push your limits.
  • Half Marathon: A great distance for those looking to test their endurance.
  • 10 Kilometres: Perfect for intermediate runners.

Each race route follows the breathtaking coastline of Alexandra Headland, offering stunning ocean views and picturesque white sandy beaches.

Community and Inclusivity

This festival is not just about the races; it’s about bringing the community together. The 2km event is designed to be inclusive, allowing parents with prams and wheelchair entrants to join in the fun.
