Meet the organizer

Gold Coast Ultras was established by former ultra runner, Ian Cornelius, upon his return from New Zealand in 2002. The Australian 100 km championships had ceased to be held as a dedicated race from 1998 and Ian re-established this race as a dedicated race in 2003. He acted as race director for Kurrawa to Duranbah from 1999 while still in NZ and took over the ownership of that race in 2002.

4.8 out of 5 stars

  • Did the 50 Km in 2019

    Was a good event but could of done with a more interesting course was a tad repetitive. Great organization and the staff were super friendly and I liked the prize giving was after each race so it wasnt a super long day.
  • Did the 50 Km in 2018

    To me one of the best longer races for either someone starting out in Ultra Marathons or experienced runners trying for faster times. 6.25KM Laps are pretty much ideal as with aid stations on course really all you (or your crew) need is one spot for your specific needs. Running on paths with no cross roads or driveways (around a park) means you only have to concentrate on your own running. With a number of different events lots of people out there whether that be to chat with or race against so the laps don't seem as many. Very flat course, tiny bit of undulation is enough to just vary your stride which is helpful i find.
  • Did the Supermarathon in 2017

    Its run on a dead flat 6.25km course so if you're after a fast time its ideal.Good for your crew. They just sit in Runnaway bay stadium put their ft up and wait for you to come through
