Gold Coast Marathon 2013 view slide show

The weather in the lead up to the Gold Coast Marathon was beautiful quite different to the Max 9 and Min 4 for Hobart.

What a race, with the eventual winners being Japan's Yukiko Akaba 2:27.17 (womens) and Yuki Kawuchi 2:10:01 (mens).

You could not wipe the smiles off their faces as they posed for photos.

Such a gruelling race (42 kms) will always have it's tough stories Kenyans Edwin Kiprop Korir and Samson Barmao had to withdraw at the 30 k mark clearly in distress.
