To ensure the safety of participants, volunteers and spectators, police-controlled road closures will be in place along the course on Sunday 5 May 2024.

You may experience delays to ensure event safety. If possible, we suggest those affected make alternative arrangements on Sunday to avoid delays and to assist in minimising traffic congestion.

Sunday 5 May: Roads will be closed from 3:30am and will progressively reopen as events are completed. All roads are scheduled to reopen by 1:15pm.

The success of this great community event relies heavily on local support. We encourage all Toowoomba residents and businesses to join in on the event’s excitement and atmosphere by decorating your home or business, promoting a marathon special to entice participants to your business or participating in one of our five races.

Travel tips

If you live in affected suburbs or need to access these suburbs during the Toowoomba Marathon presented by Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport, please consider these travel tips:
  • Add additional time to your journey in anticipation of delays.
  • Due to this event, traffic in surrounding suburbs will be congested.
  • Avoid travelling along the James Street at Kitchener Street between 6:00am and 6:35am as traffic delays are expected.
  • After 6:35am use James Street to travel east and west.
  • If possible, use the Toowoomba Bypass instead of Toowoomba Connection Road.
  • If travelling north and south, use Alderley Street onto West Street to avoid delays at Long Street.
  • Access to Prince Henry Heights will be maintained under Queensland Police and Traffic Controll direction. There will be periods when the number of runners using the road restricts access. To avoid delays, the best time to travel is before 6:45am and after 9:15am.
  • If needing to egress from homes along the course during the marathon, where possible it is suggested to park on the closest side street on the evening of Saturday 4 May 2024.
