Decision made on Gold Coast Marathon

Decision made on this weekends Gold Coast Marathon

It’s been a big news day on the Gold Coast, with COVID press conferences and major events making statements regarding the government’s COVID lockdown that comes into place tonight at 6 pm.

With only three days to go until the return of the Gold Coast Marathon, it was all looking like a triumphant return until the final hours when organisers have had to make a decision on the event.

The organisers of the Village Roadshow Theme Parks Gold Coast Marathon have released the following statement,

“It is with the utmost regret that due to the three-day lockdown enforced by the Queensland Government to mitigate the spread of Covid-19, Events Management Queensland has been left with no choice but to cancel the Village Roadshow Theme Parks Gold Coast Marathon.
The ongoing health risks, impacts on workforce/volunteers, disruptions to travel and uncertainty ahead dictated drastic action to ensure there were no further threats to the health and wellbeing of participants, stakeholders and the wider Gold Coast community.
This decision has not been made lightly given the experience of the 2020 cancellation and comes with heartfelt disappointment from the team at Events Management Queensland.
We are working hard to provide options for your consideration tomorrow. Thank you for your understanding.”
