The 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon 2017 is proud to announce it will host the Australian Half Marathon Championships on Sunday 20 August. It’s the first time we have been awarded a national title race and we couldn’t be more excited, or proud, to be given the opportunity to showcase both the event and location.
Competing athletes will duel not only for top spot on the dais, but also Priority Status for selection to compete in the green and gold at the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships 2018 on behalf of Athletics Australia.
The half marathon will be capped at 2000 runners (as it is each year) to ensure maximum safety and enjoyability for everyone on course. We’re on target for a sell out for the 21.1km, which includes the 2017 Australian Half Marathon Championship. We’ll keep runners updated on entry levels as race day approaches.
