The 2016 Noosa Triathlon

  • Written by Susan Ewington

The 2016 Noosa Triathlon will be aiming to again be recognised as the world's largest mass participation triathlon, following achieving this for the first time last year.

Established in 1983 and hosted in Noosa, last year's Olympic distance (1500m swim, 40km ride and 10km run) triathlon, saw over 8000 participants cross the finish line, enough to knock the London triathlon off top spot.

In 2015 Noosa was followed by the London, Hamburg and Chicago Triathlons respectively.

Tourism Noosa CEO Damien Massingham said the Noosa Tri is the most iconic triathlon in Australia and is now the largest in the world showcasing Noosa's key assets and arguably one of the best coastal and aquatic experiences in Australia.

“The swim leg was moved to Noosa Main Beach last year which excited both participants and spectators and this will happen again in 2016.  This evolution and the continuation of Noosa being the largest triathlon in the world will help further cement Noosa's reputation as one of Australia's leading regional events destinations” said Mr Massingham.

Event organisers, IRONMAN Oceania, Managing Director David Beeche is keen to do everything possible to make sure the Noosa Triathlon holds onto the title of the world's biggest.

“Last year's accolade was an important acknowledgement for the Noosa Triathlon recognising it as a leader of the sport and the world-class events that are hosted in Queensland.” Mr Beeche said.

“Noosa Triathlon embraces an exclusive experience and atmosphere, something which I encourage everyone to participant in at least once”.

“Noosa is not only the home of the great triathlon but a base for some of the world's best athletes as it offers a perfect climate and unique lifestyle which celebrates health, fitness and the outdoors.”

Noosa Triathlon Multi Sport Festival is a five-day hallmark event (26 October – 30 October) and includes a stacked line-up of events for all ages and abilities. The schedule includes the Noosa Legends Triathlon, Subaru Noosa Australian Open Criterium and Noosa Asics Bolt which attract premium fields and sporting legends.
