Stretch your muscles, prepare your running shoes, get ready, set and go to the Ironman 70.3.

The Sunshine Coast will be hosting the inaugural Half Ironman – the first in the region – so expect aspects of Mooloolaba’s striking coast to be highlighted.

Competitors will surely take in all the best Mooloolaba has to offer. The run will begin with a swim off the surf beach, then a flat and fast bike course followed by a two-lap course around the Mooloolaba Esplanade. After which, it’s all competitive fun from there.

Ironman 70.3 is the world’s fastest growing triathlon series. The event complements a slew of popular triathlon competitions held across the State a few of which include the following: the Noosa Triathlon Multi-Sport Festival, Cairns Airport Adventure Festival and the Mooloolaba Triathlon.

The event is set to attract more than a thousand competitors and spectators.
