Early Bird entry fees for the 2013 Gold Coast Airport Marathon events

Event General Manager Cameron Hart today urged intending participants
to take advantage of the $20 discount fee.

Airport Marathon and ASICS Half Marathon competitors get in fast
given our safety-driven decision last week to cap the events at 6,500
and 11,000 participants respectively," Mr Hart said.
"Intending entrants in those events should waste no time registering.
"At the moment entries across all events are almost 30 per cent up on
the same time last year, when a record 28,224 faced the starter
across the two days," he said.
The Gold Coast Airport Marathon is a major highlight on Queensland's
event calendar, attracting people from more than 30 countries and
showcasing the Gold Coast as a premier sporting event destination.
This year's race program will feature the full 42.195km Gold Coast
Airport Marathon, ASICS Half Marathon, Southern Cross University 10km
Run, Suncorp Bank 5.7km Challenge and 4km and 2km Junior Dash races.

for a charity of their choice.
