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 Alexandra 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.
