2012 marks the 30th anniversary of the Noosa Triathlon Multi Sport Festival - an event that brings together an irresistible mix of sport and entertainment coupled with sun and surf in one of Australia’s most popular destinations, Noosa.
The festival goes over 4 days, however the iconic event - the Olympic distance Noosa Triathlon - will be held on Sunday, 4 November 2012.About the Event
Arising from very humble beginnings in 1983, the very first Noosa Triathlon attracted only 180 competitors, helmets were optional, wetsuits were banned and cyclists got lost on the course! However, after 28 years of operation, it is Australia’s largest triathlon event and the largest Multisport Festival of its kind in the southern hemisphere.
The Noosa Triathlon Multi Sport Festival is an annual five-day hallmark event, celebrating sports participation, healthy lifestyles, fitness and fun for people all ages and abilities. The feature event on the final day of the festival is the Noosa Triathlon, which is the world’s second largest Olympic Distance Triathlon, behind London Triathlon.
Despite the quality and sheer magnitude of the event, the Noosa Triathlon Multi Sport Festival prides itself on incorporating a more relaxed easy-going beach atmosphere typical of its location, while retaining the professionalism and competitive nature evident in larger international triathlons. Slogans such as Swim, Bike, Run, PARTY! and It’s all good have dubbed the festival the ‘peoples triathlon’ and are indicative of the event’s entertaining nature.2011 EVENT UPDATES:
