The Famous Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is 66km south of Brisbane on Australia’s east coast. It’s famed for its long sandy beaches, surfing spots and elaborate system of inland canals and waterways. It’s also home to theme parks such as Dreamworld, Sea World and Wet’n’Wild. Inland, hiking trails crisscross Lamington National Park’s mountain ridges and valleys, home to rare birds and rainforest. The Gold Coast is famous as Australia’s premier holiday destination, and visitors flock to this beautiful part of the world all year round to enjoy amazing beaches and near-perfect weather.

Race Day Weather

The weather in December on the Gold Coast is an average of 28 degrees, so runners should be prepared for warm conditions on race day.

Kurrawa to Coolangatta

The GC50 run course runs along the famous beach strip from Kurrawa in Broadbeach, to Coolangatta in the southern end of Queensland. It is renowned as one of the most scenic runs in Australia, and a perfect course for spectators, as every part of the course is next to beautiful sandy beaches.
