Gold Coast 50, Saturday, & Runner's Runner

Our next big event is the Gold Coast 50 (formally known as Kurrawa 2 Duranbah)

Date: Sunday 13th December 
Event options:  there is something for everybody, even the kids!! 

  • Solo ultra 50km; 
  • two-person relay – 25km each; 
  • solo 30km and 
  • solo 15km. 
  • These are all on the road or adjoining footpath. 
  • We also have now added a 5km run/walk on the beach and a one km beach run for the kids.

Where: Starts and finishes in Miles Buisson Park, Broadbeach Boulevard, Broadbeach about 400 metres north of the Kurrawa Surf Lifesaving Club. Free car parking is available in the surrounding streets.

Start times: Start times are 0500 hrs for the 50km solo and the 2 person relay, 0515 for the 30km event,  0530 for the 15 km and 0545 for the 5km event. The beach run will start at 0600 and the kid’s run at 0700. Electronic timing will be employed and gun times will be used rather than chip times. Consequently, the early start time afforded to walkers and slower runners in previous years will be no longer available.

There will be post race entertainment for the kids such as a pop-up circus, face painting, bouncing castles, fairy floss, Mr Whippy etc.  This will start at 0700. Santa Claus will be in attendance to hand out finisher's medallions to the kids, .... see kid's race below,  There will also be a BBQ, coffee, food and drink vendors in attendance. Special thanks to Jetts Fitness for providing bottled water for all competitors.

Sounds like an awesome event!! We would love for you to join us!
