Runaway Noosa Marathon Returns This Weekend

Runners from Australia and around the world are putting the finishing touches to their preparations for this Saturday’s Runaway Noosa Marathon, with the 2023 edition set to be the biggest ever.

The Runaway Noosa Marathon will see runners take on four distances on Saturday 27 May, with 5km, 10km, half marathon and marathon events on offer, with more than 5,000 runners set to take part.

The flat, fast and friendly multi-lap course is set in the heart of Noosa, with the start and finish line just steps away from Hastings Street, with runners never far away from fellow participants and supporters.

Geoff Meyer, Managing Director of Oceania for The IRONMAN Group, organisers of the Runaway Noosa Marathon, said that the team was looking forward to welcoming runners back to Noosa.

“The Runaway Noosa Marathon provides a great opportunity for runners to spend the weekend in this incredible region, take part in the run of their choice on Saturday morning and then relax,” said Meyer. “We’re thrilled with the response from runners from home and abroad with this year’s event set to be the biggest in its history.

“The Runaway Noosa Marathon has a fantastic mix of social runners who are out for a fun morning right up to those who are out for a marathon PB on a flat and fast course,” he said.

For those who want to mix a swim in with their run Swim Noosa takes place the following day, Sunday 28 May.

Swim Noosa provides the perfect opportunity to finish off the race weekend with a dip in Laguna Bay off Noosa Main Beach. The event offers four ocean swims, including 500m, 1km, 2km and 3.8km swims, beginning from 7am.

Entries remain open for the Runaway Noosa Marathon and Swim Noosa.

The Runaway Noosa Marathon is supported by the Queensland Government through Tourism and Events Queensland and features on the It’s Live! in Queensland events calendar.
