NOT SURE IF YOU CAN DO IT? ASK US HOW!
No! When you decide to participate, you can choose to run any of the nominated distances per day, with the final marathon – The Gold Coast Marathon – being the only half or full marathon you will need to register for.
You will be given 6 hours maximum to complete the distance of your choice. You could choose to walk the half, or jog the 7kms and give yourself more recovery time.
There are many options and we are happy to discuss these with you.
There will be a mentor/coach who will be providing support online via our private Facebook group, email contact and phone calls. The mentor will also develop a standard training program, and can adjust this based on individual needs.
Also, you can download our TRAINING TIPS HANDBOOK as a good starting point if you are new to marathon running.
