One of Australia's most loved running festivals, the 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon, is set to be bigger and better in 2014 with its great beachfront course and more runners than ever before.

In its third year, 7SCM will again deliver a flat, fast and scenic course so you can achieve your goal, no matter what your ability. Whether you're an elite athlete testing the legs and chasing down prize money, an age grouper looking for an elusive PB, a first time marathoner nervous about making the distance or a beginner wanting to know what the fuss is all about, you can achieve it by running the 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon.

Up to 8000 runners of all ages and abilities are expected to take part in one of the five events on Sunday August 31. Better still 100% of event profits go to groups such as Ronald McDonald House Charities and The Westpac Foundation and more than 70 worthwhile causes chosen by YOU the runner.
