With a 750m swim, 20km cycle and 5km run the sprint distance will hit the sweet spot whether you want a lung buster or a taste of triathlon.

It’s the same stunning Mooloolaba Tri course, only half the distance. With draft-legal and non-drafting waves it leaves the experienced athletes to draft and blast it out up front while the rest of us can take it at our own pace.

Who should do the sprint non-drafting triathlon?
The sprint non-drafting triathlon is a great event for everyone. It’s perfect for beginners keen to have their first crack at a triathlon, through to experienced athletes who want to race themselves against the clock.

Course Summary


The 750-meter swim course with the swim start located on the eastern end of Mooloolaba Main Beach. It’s a 'flag' shaped course that runs in an anti-clockwise direction with the first turn buoy at 350 metres, with swimmers completing two left hand turns before returning to shore. 


Athletes will then cycle up and over Alexander Headlands, completing three laps of the course. 


To finish off the event, athletes will run the one-lap course in a clockwise direction taking in some of the most scenic coastal views of the Sunshine Coast.
