No deferral option available.

The safety of all athletes on course is our priority. Our event team considers each race/event individually to determine the entry requirements. Due to course conditions, including the volume of participants on course, traffic conditions and road running safety requirements associated with this course, the ASICS Runaway Noosa Marathon and Half Marathon is not suitable to be completed using wheelchairs (racing and non-racing) or with prams. While these distances are not suitable, our goal is to make everyone’s racing dreams a reality so if you would like information on other events where the course is able to accommodate wheelchair participation or any other course accessibility needs, please email us at: runawaynoosa@ironman.com.
