COURSE OVERVIEW

A fast, flat two-lap course that showcases the very best of the Southern Gold Coast.

Enjoy closed roads as you run the streets of Coolangatta, Kirra and Bilinga before joining the stunning Oceanway, where after a short out and back, you’ll enjoy a new one-way flow all the way back to Coolangatta as you take in the ocean views.

Get ready for a festival atmosphere as you pass through the start/finish precinct and re-join the roads to commence lap two or head into the finish chute, where the crowds will be cheering you home!
