Message from Minister for Tourism Industry Development, The Honourable Kate Jones MP

Welcome to the inaugural 2018 Runaway Noosa Marathon – Australia’s newest destination running experience and weekend gateway on the Sunshine Coast.

Athletes of all abilities can escape to this iconic destination and soak up the atmosphere of this highly anticipated running event set against the stunning backdrop of Noosa’s coastline.

Participants can choose from five flat, fast and friendly multi-lap distances, with live music that will ensure an enjoyable running experience for everyone.

Events like this provide a major influx of visitors to the Sunshine Coast region. This event is expected to provide more than 12,000 visitor nights, supporting local jobs and providing an important boost to the Queensland economy.

The Queensland Government proudly supports this event through Tourism and Events Queensland’s It’s Live! in Queensland major events calendar.

Congratulations to the organisers, the sponsors and volunteers for hosting such a successful event for Queensland and I wish all competitors the best of luck this weekend.

For all those visiting Noosa, I encourage you to stay on and explore the naturally refreshing Sunshine Coast.

The Hon. Kate Jones, MP
Minister for Tourism Industry Development
