Doug Jennings Park, Main Beach Spit is the location for a brand-new race bought to you by the team behind the fisiocrem GC50 Run Festival.
Sport 3 Events, the team that delivers the fisiocrem GC50 Run Festival held each year in Coolangatta, are proud to announce a new ‘sister’ race to the 25-year-old iconic run to be held at Doug Jennings Park, Main Beach on Sunday May 23, 2021 – the fisiocrem GC30 Main Beach.
The fisiocrem GC30 Main Beach will welcome a host of runners of all fitness abilities and is offering 30km, 15km, 7.5km and Kids Dash events. Strategically positioned late May, the 30km event will provides a perfect hit-out for runners to test their fitness, nutrition plans and to complete their ‘last long run’ in their preparation for upcoming marathons. Runners will be fully supported on course with closed roads, aid stations and the support of friends, family and fellow runners.
Also, on offer will be the 15km and 7.5km runs which are perfect distances for those runners who would like to make the jump from 5km and 10km before tackling a half-marathon. The fisiocrem GC50 has always been a family-friendly race attracting entrants of all ages and fitness abilities. 60% of the fisiocrem GC50 field is made up of female runners and the team at Sport 3 Events expect a similar turnout for the fisiocrem GC30.
“We are very excited about the new fisiocrem GC30. It’s an opportunity for runners and walkers of all abilities to test their fitness, achieve a goal or enjoy a run with friends within a welcoming atmosphere in one of the most spectacular running locations in South East Queensland. The fisiocrem GC50 attracts a broad cross section of athlete, who all come together to to support each other and have a fun day – the fisiocrem GC30 event offers another opportunity for that to take place,” says Event Manager, Adam Goodger.
The course will be spectacular and highlight the upgraded area of the famous Gold Coast Spit, which is the staging point for the start and finish lines. The course includes a combination of closed roads (Sea World Drive) and hard packed trails that make up Federation Walk which follows the coastline.

“I train a lot along the northern end of the Gold Coast and love running around Main Beach and The Spit. To have a race, organised by the professional team who manage the fisiocrem GC50, in that area will make for one spectacular run. The timing is perfect, the course amazing – why would you not want to do this race? I can’t wait,” said Gold Coast runner Anderson ‘Ando’ Moquiuti.
Australia’s leading sports massage cream fisocrem have also confirmed their involvement of the fisiocrem GC30 as the Naming Rights Partner for the next two years, extending their support also of the fisiocrem GC50 Run Festival.
