The Noosa Multi Sports Festival is one of the big draw cards on the Olympic Distance Triathlon Calendar, with some of the best athletes heading to sunny Noosa for what is a fun and exciting weekend of events to be a part of.
For years Tri Alliance has been packing their bikes into bags and heading to where the sun is, to kick start the triathlon season – and this year is no different, only BIGGER!
40+ Tri Alliance athletes have locked themselves into this great race, with some athletes completing an olympic distance for the first time, in search for a PB or a podium finish, others simply come for the after party celebrations!
If you need help with packing your bike into a box, make sure you contact CBD Cycles as they have kindly offered to do this for you for only $20!
So if you are heading to Noosa – read on as we have plenty in store!
