In our 30th year we've given our valued partners and every runner a reason to celebrate with us - the Brisbane Marathon Festival is on track to attract 8000 participants with the unveiling of the new two lap Marathon course.

The Brisbane City Botanic Gardens will act as the main precinct and will accommodate the expo village, the start and finish line areas as well as registration.

A scenic two-lap course for the marathon, the course will take in the best that Brisbane has to offer from the City Centre, across the full closure of the Story Bridge, Kangaroo Point Cliffs and New Farm. The event hub will become a hive of activity hosting running clubs, corporate teams, partners and sponsors. On-course and post-race entertainment at the Botanic Gardens are an integral element of the participant’s overall event experience.
