Festival Information

For 25 years the Noosa Triathlon, the world’s biggest single event Olympic distance triathlon, has held the distinction of being Australia’s favourite place to race.

For more than 5,500 competitors making the annual pilgrimage to Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, the Noosa Tri is more than just a triathlon and more than tradition, it is the place to be and the “must do” event of the year.

To celebrate Noosa is throwing a big 25th birthday bash and whether you chose to race, or just reminisce and relax with family and friends, Sunday 4 November, 2007 is the day to join the extended Noosa family and get back to where it all began.

The silver anniversary event promises to be ‘pure gold’ with the return of five time Noosa champion Craig Walton, three time world and Noosa champion Emma Snowsill and defending champion Felicity Abram.

ITU World Cup stars Courtney Atkinson and Simon Thompson have never tasted success in Noosa and are keen to dethrone Walton on the famous out and back course before they begin their final preparation for selection for the Beijing Olympics.

Triathlon living legend and winner of the 1988 event, Brad Beven is making the milestone race his Noosa comeback and despite the passing of time, “the Croc” is in sensational shape and looking to cause some havoc among the younger competitors.

Triple world champion Peter Robertson makes his return to Noosa and to competition after a virus that sidelined him for the past four months. Robertson needs to impress selectors in the next three months if he is to have any chance of securing a spot for Beijing.

Women’s winner in 1992 and 1995, Rina Bradshaw returns to race as super mum Rina Hill and the Athens Olympian will be out to see if she can score a Noosa title in the new millienium.

Fresh from Kona, Australian Ironman champ Belinda Granger, a Noosa winner in 1998, is keen to again crank the bike down the Cooroy Hill and mix it up over the fast and furious Olympic distance.

World champs, blasts from the past, future stars, local legends and even your next door neighbour will be slogging it out on Noosa Parade, in the reunion to end all reunions.

Noosa 2007 has it all and you're invited, so don’t miss your chance to be a part of triathlon history.
