    This is a really well organized race and for first time marathoners, it’s flat.
    The first half of the race is run along a very scenic part of the Gold Coast. You will run beside the beach along a flat road for most of the way. You need to psych yourself up a little bit for the 30km mark because you will run past the finish line for the last leg. If you have family there, get them to meet you and pace you past that point.
    The weather is temperate. No long sleeves required. No need to wear old clothes to the start line that you need to throw off as the gun goes, though plenty of people still do that.
    Race swag in Australia is never as good as it is in the US. That is true for all Australian races. You will get a good medal and a finisher shirt and a bag with some free stuff, but the swag won’t be the highlight.
    My advice, stay in Broadbeach. It’s near the expo and travel to the race start is easy on the tram.

    This is likely the easiest race I’ve done as far as race courses go. I don’t recall a single hill. There are actual bathrooms every mile or so. It was pretty warm and the crowds of runners didn’t really dissipate. But it was a fun international adventure and I’d recommend it!
