The Noosa Triathlon team is inviting the local community to get involved in this year’s event with entries now open for the Noosa Triathlon Festival Events.
The Noosa Triathlon Festival Events provide a great opportunity for people of all ages, backgrounds and experience to be a part of the iconic event.
After not taking place in 2020 the Noosa Triathlon returns this year between Wednesday 27 and Sunday 31 October with a range of Festival Events on offer.
Geoff Meyer, managing director of The Ironman Group Oceania, said the Festival Events were a great way for people to be a part of the Noosa Triathlon.
“After a year’s break, the team can’t wait to see the Noosa Triathlon return this October,” Mr Meyer said.
“We’re thrilled to have a capacity field signed up for Sunday’s triathlon and with Festival Events entries now open we look forward to having people from throughout the local community join us for what is shaping up to be another great event.
“Our local community is incredibly important to the continued success of the Noosa Triathlon and we believe this year’s Festival Events provide a great way for everyone to be involved.”
The Noosa Triathlon Festival Events kick off on Wednesday 27 October with the Noosa Run Swim Run, starting and finishing on Main Beach.
