Runaway and chase the sun in Noosa

The Runaway Noosa Marathon on Saturday 27 May 2018 is the newest addition to the Runaway Marathon Series where you get to combine your favourite past-time with your ultimate holiday destination in a family-friendly weekend escape.

Whether running for fun or totally full on, the world famous Noosa Heads is the place to run away to.

IRONMAN Oceania are excited to launch Runaway Noosa Marathon in a location that combines the outdoors and being active in a relaxed, pedestrian-friendly, beachside thoroughfare of designer boutiques and cool cafes, with one of the most stunning locations on Earth.

Or grab some friends and take up the two or four-member Team Relay option and share the fun.

​Marco! … Polo! Usually the sound of summer in Australia. I’m overlooking the pool at Mantra French Quarter Noosa with a glass of Lanson in hand and it is supposedly winter. Don’t tell the kids. Perhaps winter never comes to Noosa...

VISIT NOOSA

Just how close to a humpback whale would you feel comfortable being? Watching the majesty of humpbacks as they travel through the warm waters off Noosa on their annual migration north is an unforgettable sight – their playful tail slaps, breaches, sprays and fin ‘waves’ seem even more incredible when you consider their size … around 15m in length and weighing more than 35 tonnes!

See the best views of Noosa from Mt Tinbeerwah, four-wheel-drive past Noosa’s ‘coloured sands’ along Noosa North Shore or glamp it up in a ‘Luxury Teepee Tent.’ Relax on the water at Lake Cootharaba or kayak through Australia’s only Everglades, and its football fields of water lilies. It’s time, to start your NEW Noosa adventure!
