The Hon Kate Jones MP

Welcome to the Brisbane Marathon Festival’s Virtual Run Festival.

The Brisbane Marathon Festival is a much-loved community event, providing a terrific platform to showcase healthy lifestyles and the love of physical activity we share in our great state.

It is heartening to see the resilience and innovation of the event organisers to ensure they can still bring the community together for this virtual event, providing a boost to competitors, still showcasing Brisbane and ensuring public health remains the top priority.

The Queensland Government is proud to support this event through Tourism and Events Queensland.

Thank you to the event organisers for pivoting so quickly to ensure this event continued despite the challenges presented by COVID-19.

To all those participating in the event, best of luck and be sure to share your experience on social media to connect people around the world with the Queensland spirit.
