Event Profile

Run for the GOOD TIMES and support a charity of your choice. The 39th Gold Coast Airport Marathon will take place on 1-2 July 2017 on one of the flattest, fastest and most scenic courses in the world. There is a race for everyone to enjoy the occasion! The 2016 event was a huge success as runners enjoyed the opportunity to get outdoors, challenge themselves and raise funds for their chosen charity. Over $380,000 was raised!

Take up the challenge and ask your supporters to run for your cause.

How to set up a Gold Coast Airport Marathon supporter page

Setting up an online supporter page in the Gold Coast Airport Marathon is easy – after registration, your supporters can choose to fundraise for you by creating an Everydayhero supporter page:

Step 2: After the registration process, participants will be prompted to set up an online supporter page as part of their run.
Step 3: Set up your new Everydayhero supporter page.
Step 4: Personalise your page with a profile photo and tell everyone why you’re supporting your chosen charity.
Step 5: Share your unique supporter page link with your friends, family and colleagues via email and social media.

Asking your supporters to compete for you

It’s easy to make the most of the event opportunity. It all begins with asking your supporters to take part and support you by giving their effort and time. Make sure you ask:
  • Past supporters who have run, walked, ridden or swam for you previously
  • Both your one off and regular donors, by offering them another way they can support you with their effort
  • Your volunteers
  • Your charity’s staff
We have email templates to help you ask your supporters to compete.

Setting up a charity team

Setting up a fundraising team is a great way to build a sense of community for all your supporters in the event. Once you’ve created your charity team, make sure you invite anyone supporting you in the event to join. Need help setting up a charity team? download our guide here.
