Gold Coast Marathon

On Sunday I ran the Gold Coast Marathon. I'd set myself the target of breaking the 3hr 30min barrier and managed to finish in 3hr 27min 50secs. I was delighted!

It was a tough run and I had to push really hard to run that quickly. There wasn't much left in the tank as I crossed the line. I finished 740th out of 4,549 runners which I think is pretty respectable.

I'll write more detailed notes of my run over the next few days. In the meantime here's a map of my run.

You can see details of split times, heart rate, elevation etc.. by clicking on the map above or here.


  1. I don't much like the idea of running halfway and then turning around and coming back. Could they not think of a slightly more original route?

    Hope it wasn't too hot.

  2. I didn't like the idea of the course either. However, hugging the coast means that it is very flat and I didn't find it as annoying / demoralising as I thought I might do.
