Join the fun and Run the Coast at GC50 Run Festival this December. Registrations are now open with a wide range of disciplines to choose from to suit varying fitness levels and abilities.
GC50 Run Festival has been on the annual event calendar since 1997! The course takes a scenic path utilising roads and footpaths adjacent to the Gold Coast beachfront for the 15km, 30km and 50km distances. In a first, this year a beach run has been introduced with 5km, 2.5km and kids1km events.
Events included in the GC50 Run Festival include:
50km – minimum age is 18
30km – minimum age is 16
15km – minimum age is 14
5km Beach Run– runners under 12 must be accompanied by a parent
2 person x 25km relay – minimum age is 16
2.5km Kids Beach Run – minimum age is 7

This year the organisers are also introducing a 'State of Origin' style competition. Participants can 'opt in' during registration to represent their state. The state with the lowest average time for each distance will be crowned State of Origin Champions for that particular distance. While it is fun, it isn't compulsory, if you don't want to take part you can simply select 'no' during your registration process.
