We are excited to announce a brand new initiative for school groups participating in the 2018 7 News Gold Coast Running Festival  – not only will all registered schools be eligible for cash rebates on all school based entries, they will also be in the running to win some amazing prices from Rebel Sport!


Looking for a fundraising opportunity?  Simply enter a school team in to the 2018  7 News Gold Coast Running Festival and receive a 10% cash rebate on all paid school based entries – kids, adults and family entries included.  Email to get your team set up today – it simply could not be easier to raise funds for your school!


In addition to the school rebates, the event will once again be hosting the rebel Schools Challenge in 2018!  All registered school groups will be in the running to WIN the following prizes:

  • 1st Prize:  $750 rebel voucher
  • 2nd Prize:  $500 rebel voucher
  • 3rd Prize:  $250 rebel voucher

Points are accumulated for every participant that runs for your school*, no matter the distance they enter, for example:

  • 1 participant = 1 point
  • 10 participants = 10 points

We recommend Primary Schools encourage their students to participate in the 2.5km event however entries from all distances are welcome.

*Please note, only those participants entered before midday Friday 18 May will be counted as part of the Schools Challenge. Entries after this time will not go towards the Schools Challenge.  The top 3 schools will be announced at the event presentations.
