The 27th annual Brisbane Marathon Festival will attract thousands of competitors who are ready to run for a reason on the streets of Queensland's Capital City on 5 August 2018.

You can not only challenge yourself on course, but you can also challenge yourself and friends to raise funds for your favourite charity.

Our official charity partner for the McDonald’s Brisbane Marathon Festival is Ronald McDonald House SEQ.

Ronald McDonald House SEQ provides accommodation for the families of seriously ill children who live more than 50km from the treating hospital in Brisbane. Ronald McDonald Houses help to preserve the family unit in the midst of physical, emotional and financial stress and also gives parents the chance to draw hope and comfort from other families in similar situations, while being supported by dedicated and friendly staff and volunteers.
