Marathon entries open
Over 13,000 competitors are expected to take part in the 28th annual 2006 Gold Coast Airport Marathon on Sunday, July 2, with a solid contingent of local runners set to participate.
The 42km feature event will coincide with a number of less gruelling events, notably the Asics Half Marathon, Telstra Country Wide 10km Run and the Gold Coast Bulletin 7.5km Walk.
Queensland Events Gold Coast general manager, Cameron Hart, said organisers are confident of another record-breaking year as the event continues to go from strength to strength.
Last year 12,711 competitors took part in the event from 35 countries.
Entry forms for the Gold Coast Airport Marathon and associated events are now available. Phone (07) 5564 8733 or visit www.goldcoastmarathon.com.au.
