GC50 Run Festival

Sunday 8 December 2019

Now in its 23rd year, The GC50 Run Festival has been an annual event since its inception in 1997. Its breathtaking coastal course has seen the event as a regular favourite among the Gold Coast running community over the years. Following a sell-out 2018, the GC50 Run Festival now invites you to #RUNTHECOAST this December!

The  50km, 30km, 15km events use the footpaths and roads adjacent to the Gold Coast beachfront, home of the world’s most attractive beaches. Running from Kurrawa to Coolangatta & return, in the 50km event, the course provides athletes with spectacular views, regular water stops and aid stations . Don’t miss out on running this stunningly beautiful run course. This year the 5km event will take place on the beach, along with the inaugural kids events.

This year, we’re calling on the community to join us with the introduction of the GC50 Beach Run. Now offering 5km, 2.5km and 1km kids events on the safety of the sand!
