Run, Swim, Cycle and Paddle In The Beautiful Sunshine Coast
Dust off the speedos and lace up your runners, the Noosa Ultimate Sports Fest is hitting the Sunshine Coast April 27 and 28. Whether you like to swim, run, cycle, or do all three, you'll find something worth entering this April at Noosa. Formerly known as the Noosa Winter Festival, this year's event has freshened up its look with a great mix of events.

The Zinc 96.1 Swim Noosa is a great way to make a splash and kick off the festival. There's plenty of distances to choose from, no matter your fitness level. For the absolute athletes there's the 3.8km ocean swim, a new distance this year. At the other end of the scale, you can enjoy a quick dip with the 500m swim.

Paddle Noosa is open to a number of various paddle crafts including ocean racing skis, SLSA surf skis, stand up paddle boards and single outriggers. If you've got it in you, give the 40km race a crack, otherwise, the 8km may just be for you.
