Triathletes from across Australia and several other countries will gather on the Sunshine Coast this weekend for the Mooloolaba Triathlon, one of the most popular sporting events in the region. With more than 5,000 athletes expected to participate in the two-day event, the Mooloolaba Triathlon will offer opportunities for both experienced and first-time triathletes to showcase their skills and passion for the sport.
Geoff Meyer, Managing Director - The Ironman Group, expressed his excitement about the upcoming event. Meyer noted that the Mooloolaba Triathlon has been a favorite for over three decades, with athletes of all abilities and experience levels participating in the event.
“For more than 30 years, we’ve seen some incredible performances at the Mooloolaba Triathlon from those at the front of the race, as well as tens of thousands of athletes experiencing the sport for the first time,” Meyer said.
As the Mooloolaba Triathlon continues to grow in popularity, it has also become an important event for the Sunshine Coast’s economy and reputation. According to Sunshine Coast Council Economy Portfolio Councillor Jason O’Pray, the Mooloolaba Triathlon has brought significant benefits to the region since its inception in 1993.
“Mooloolaba Beach is the perfect hub for the event, with a variety of cafes, restaurants, bars, and accommodation,” O’Pray said. “The wider Sunshine Coast offers an attractive event destination with an enviable climate, natural attractions like the Glass House Mountains, and a friendly, welcoming culture.”
The Mooloolaba Triathlon has been an eagerly anticipated event in the triathlon community for many years. This year’s event is expected to attract an estimated 5,000 athletes, including both first-time triathletes and experienced professionals.
One of the most significant benefits of the Mooloolaba Triathlon is the opportunity it provides for athletes to showcase their skills and passion for the sport. With the Sprint Triathlon on Saturday and the Standard Triathlon on Sunday, the event offers opportunities for both new and experienced triathletes to participate.
Jason O’Pray, Sunshine Coast Council Economy Portfolio Councillor, praised the Mooloolaba Triathlon as an essential event for the region's economy and reputation. He noted that the event has helped position the Sunshine Coast as a hub for triathlon in Australia.
The Mooloolaba Triathlon is a must-see event for triathletes and sports enthusiasts in Australia and around the world. With over 5,000 athletes expected to participate, this year’s event promises to be another exciting showcase of the sport's best talent.
