SUNSHINE COAST – After the disappointing news that the Sunshine Coast MultiSport Festival had to be rescheduled from 27/28 April, a new date; 25th and 26th May 2019 has been announced.
“It was very disappointing for everyone concerned to have to cancel the original dates, however, we are very privileged to work with some amazing organisations and people.
All of our partners and service providers including Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service, SEQ Water, the Sunshine Coast Council and Tourism and Events Queensland and all of our amazing In2Adventure family have worked with us to be able to reschedule the festival on these new dates, which is really great news for the event and the Sunshine Coast Region.”
Tourism, Events and Sport Portfolio Councillor Jason O’Pray said “we welcome this unique MultiSport Festival to Landsborough across the new dates in May to showcase the stunning natural environment of Ewen Maddock Dam and Beerwah State Forest.”
The festival on 25th and 26th of May will take the same format as previously advertised including all the off-road action of the TreX Australian Series Championships and the Sunshine Coast Mountain Bike Festival.
At the TreX Cross Triathlon event athletes will take on an action-packed challenge with a swim, mountain bike and trail run, where the challenge is as much with mother nature as it is against other athletes.
Australian series championship contenders will tackle a challenging 1,500m swim in beautiful Ewen Maddock Dam, followed by 28.5kms of heart pumping XC mountain biking, and then finishing off with a 10.5km trail run which twists and turns through the awe-inspiring rainforests of Beerwah State Forest in the Landsborough hinterland.
The weekend continues on Sunday with the Sunshine Coast Mountain Bike Festival which offers up awe-inspiring mountain biking in the iconic rainforests of the Sunshine Coast region and includes 47.5k, 28.5k and 9.5k options as well as a free kids’ event for our littlest off-road athletes.
And it’s not just a weekend for elite athletes. TreX Triathlon offers courses and distances for all ages and abilities including Standard, Sprint, Junior, Teaser, Dirt Kids, Duathlon and AquaBike events.
This makes it an ideal weekend for hardcore racers, weekend warriors, families or those who just want to get into the great outdoors to visit one of Australia’s most scenic regions and enjoy the challenge of off-road racing.
All entries will be automatically transferred to the new event date, however, for participants who are not able to make the new date, full details can be found on the website here.
This is the final event of the 2018/19 season and to find out more and be a part of the action go to:
