The GC50 Run Festival on Sunday, 10 December 2017, previously known as Kurrawa to Duranbah and then the Gold Coast 50, has 50km, 30km, 15km and 5km races and a 2x25km relay in Broadbeach, Queensland.
The 50km is from Kurrawa to Coolangatta and back; the 30km from Kurrawa to Currumbin and back; the 15km from Kurrawa to Burleigh and back; and the 5 km along Hedges Avenue to Seaside Avenue and return. The run course is on either footpath or roadway, not on the beach.
This is one of a handful of officially accredited AIMS-IAAF certified 50 km road races in Australia. The 50 km race carries an IAU label which mean that performances are included in the world rankings.
