Posted in Local Events @ Jun 9th 2014 2:21pm - By Administrator

Australia’s home of triathlon, the Sunshine Coast will host the Ironman 70.3 which will also display all the striking features of Mooloolaba’s stunning coast.

Its first time to host an Ironman event, the Sunshine Coast will gather the toughest and most talented athletes on 14 September. All of them are geared up to take on the various challenges and vie for the USD25,000 prize purse and 40 age group qualifying slots for the 2015 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Zell am See-Kaprun, SalzburgerLand, Austria.

The majestic surrounds of Mooloolaba will also allow participants to take in its scenic views as they head on to some exciting triathlon action. They’ll experience swimming off the surf beach.  The ocean swim requires them to complete a one lap course which comes after an anticlockwise direction and begins and finishes at the ‘Loo With A View’. Then they will get their bikes on as they race on a flat and fast course. Athletes will then have to depart from Brisbane Road and move to the Sunshine Mwy via Mooloolaba Esplanade and Buderim Avenue. The first50-km bike lap will turn just before the Peregian Springs junction before going back to Mooloolaba. The second bike lap is 40km and stays unchanged with the exception that the turn is just before the Coolum Yandina Road roundabout.

To kick off the race, competitors should then outrun each other on a two-lap course around Mooloolaba’s Esplanade with spectators cheering for them along the way.

Mooloolaba Beach is a perfect place to experience the challenges and excitement of the triathlon as it boasts a perfect year-round climate. Not only triathlons, but other sporting events can find the best spots here on Sunshine Coast.
