With 360 degree views from your balloon basket, take in the mountain fresh air from the Gold Coast hinterland, before you begin your race distance, whether that’s, 42 km and the full marathon distance, or a Half Marathon or if you decide to run in the 10km race or 5.7km challenge, it’s all good fun.
