WELCOME MESSAGE FROM THE LORD MAYOR OF BRISBANE

Welcome to the 2022 Brisbane Marathon Festival! This year marks a special milestone with the festival celebrating 30 years in our beautiful city.

We are proud to see this much-loved event continue to showcase the best of Brisbane, with this year’s new two-lap Marathon course bringing a fresh perspective for participants.

From the city centre and Story Bridge to Kangaroo Point Cliffs and New Farm, runners will soak up some of Brisbane’s most renowned sites while our warm winter weather and clear blue skies will provide the perfect setting for participants to hit the ground running.

The Brisbane Marathon Festival has demonstrated that it’s more than just a competition. It’s also a welcoming event for all ages, backgrounds and abilities to get together and enjoy the outdoors.

Proudly supported by Brisbane City Council through Brisbane Economic Development Agency, the Brisbane Marathon Festival has cemented itself as a highlight on Brisbane’s major events calendar. Events like this are a big boost to local businesses, attracting visitors who fill hotels, cafes and restaurants and support our local economy.

While you are here, I encourage you to experience everything our vibrant, contemporary city has to offer. Discover our outdoor urban adventures, tree-lined open-air shopping areas and world-class cultural attractions. Have a bite to eat at one of our internationally renowned restaurants or explore our burgeoning lifestyle precincts such as James Street, Howard Smith Wharves and Fish Lane.

Enjoy your time in Brisbane and good luck to everyone taking part in the event.

Adrian Schrinner

Lord Mayor of Brisbane
