The Gold Coast Marathon for 2020 has unfortunately been cancelled but it doesn't mean that you can't train and then run the race somewhere over that weekend. Run it with the MND and Me Foundation and continue our Orange Army tradition. There are multiple distances you can complete and everyone is able to participate.
The Gold Coast Marathon Festival distances are: 2km, 4km, 5.7km, 10km, half marathon and full marathon. The whole family can join in the fun!
The Festival is one of our annual fundraising events with increasing numbers of runners over the weekend growing to almost 200 in 2019. This hole in our fundraising will have a huge impact on the services we are able to provide into 2021.
We need your help to fill this hole. In 2019 we raised close to $60,000 and we would love to reach that total again this year!
The great thing is that anyone across Queensland or the world can participate so get your family and friends together in a team and fund raise to support people with MND.
Once you join, make sure you keep us up to date on your training by posting photos using the #orangearmy and #TEAMMNDANDME hashtags and tagging the MND and Me Foundation. On the day show your true colours by wearing your MND and Me running singlets or dressing up in a blue and orange costume!
Closer to the date we may be able to organise groups runs on the day if government restrictions ease further. Stay tuned!
