COURSE MAP

COURSE OVERVIEW

This is a fast, flat, one lap course that rewards runners with some of the best ocean views around!

The course departs Queen Elizabeth Park in Coolangatta and follows the stunning Oceanway north to Tugun, before returning south to Coolangatta. Enjoy running this stunning stretch of coastline as you pass through the suburbs of Kirra, Bilinga, Tugun and Coolangatta. 

Upon returning to Coolangatta, you’ll now head straight into the finish line within Queen Elizabeth Park and no longer complete the out and back to Greenmount (if you’ve participated previously). 

Participants will complete one lap of this course, complete with course marshals, medical support and drink stations throughout.
