Local champion gives seal of approval

As a Gold Coast local and Glasgow 2014 gold medallist Michael has never run a marathon on his home turf but knows it like the back of his hand.

He was born just a stone’s throw away from the start of the GC2018 Marathon course and proudly lives and trains on the Gold Coast, but Commonwealth Games gold medallist Michael Shelley has never run a marathon in Australia, let alone in his home town.

One of the Free Events at GC2018

As one of the free events on the GC2018 program, fans will be able to line the course and create a memorable atmosphere for the athletes on the final day of competition.

A comprehensive public awareness program called Get Set Gold Coast is being implemented to ensure residents and businesses have all the information required to plan for this world-class event.
