Event update: now taking place on November 13 and November 14.
Are you excited for the Coolangatta Gold? We know we are. It’s one of the most iconic triathlon events in Australia and it was sorely missed last year!
But it’s back - set to take over Coolangatta Beach on the Gold Coast for a full weekend of high-adrenaline triathlon.
Remember the cult classic 1984 film The Coolangatta Gold? The Coolangatta Gold took after its central theme to become one of Australia’s biggest and most famous annual sporting events. It pulls in some of the world’s most renowned triathletes, giving it their all on what is a gruelling course measuring just shy of 42km!
But you don’t have to take part (sigh of relief). You can spectate, cheer on the participants and soak up the action from the oceanside. And believe us, it’s an atmosphere like no other!
So, what does the course involve? The long course - and the main event of the Coolangatta Gold - comprises skiing, paddling, swimming and running.
In that order. Simply put, it’s an endurance challenge that forces each participating triathlete to push their limits, both physically and mentally.
There’s also a short course at the Coolangatta Gold, which measures 21km. This course is for budding triathletes looking to prep and get a feel of the event. And it’s just as entertaining to watch.
Participants can take part as individuals as well as teams. And if you are looking to test your stamina, all course registrations must be submitted by 5 pm on October 3.
So, when is the 2021 Coolangatta Gold?
Saturday, November 13 and Sunday, November 14 - save the date.
