Gold Coast Airport Marathon 2016

Gold Coasters countdown to July Marathon

It’s just over a month until the Gold Coast Airport Marathon (GCAM) and to celebrate, the event’s ambassadors and other special guests will gather at the Broadwater Parklands to mark Global Running Day.

This year’s international elite field for the marathon, which will be held on July 2 and 3, will be announced during the festivities on Wednesday morning.

Two of Australia’s all-time great marathon runners and GCAM ambassadors, Pat Carroll and Benita Willis, will lead a ‘Tune Up Run’ for the community from 6:30am.


They’ll then be joined by Borobi, the mascot of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, for a ‘Warm Down’.
