Ironman 70.3 Sunshine Coast 2016
Competitors will take in the best that Mooloolaba has to offer, starting with a swim at Mooloolaba’s spectacular surf beach. The ocean swim consists of a one-lap course following a counter-clockwise direction. The bike course will be a challenging one lap route incorporating a flat and fast section on the Sunshine Motorway prior to an undulating lap through the hinterland.
From transition, runners will head north and onto the iconic Mooloolaba Esplanade. After heading over the scenic Alexandra Headland hill, athletes will continue to Cotton Tree via Sixth Avenue and Alexandra. Athletes will follow the same route for the second lap along striking shores and a spectator-lined course before finishing in the heart of Mooloolaba.
More than 3,000 athletes from around the world (who qualified at another IRONMAN 70.3 event) will compete at this prestigious race. More than 130,000 athletes participate in a season of qualifying races for the championship, a series which consists of over 85 events in locations such as Australia, Germany, South Africa and Switzerland. Participants in the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship will range in age from 18 to 75-plus, and will represent over 70 countries.
