Welcome from the Lord Mayor of Brisbane

Welcome to the Brisbane Marathon Festival 2021 – one of the oldest and friendliest highlights on Australia’s running calendar.

Featuring everything from fun fitness races to half and full marathons, Brisbane’s enviable subtropical climate, warm winter weather and clear blue skies all year round provide the perfect setting this fantastic event.

Participants will also get the opportunity to run over and alongside some Brisbane icons including the Story Bridge, South Bank Parklands, culminating in a finish at Riverstage in the City Botanic Gardens.

While you’re here, I encourage you get your heart racing at the other urban adventures Brisbane has – from abseiling to kayaking and bridge climbing to cycling, and refuel at one of the city’s vibrant restaurants.

Enjoy your time in Brisbane and I wish all participants the best of luck.

Adrian Schrinner
Lord Mayor of Brisbane
