Coolangatta Gold 2010

You’ve heard of the Ironman. What you may not have heard yet is the Coolangatta Gold competition. Like the Ironman or Woman, it is composed of different phases. However, since Gold Coast is composed of a large body of water, most of them involve the water.

What the Marathon Is About

The marathon usually happens on the first week of November from 7 in the morning. The event will begin at Surfers Paradise Beach. There are phases. The first one is skiing, followed by boat paddling, swimming, and running. There could also be surfing. The competition can be participated by three divisions: men, women, and junior. Men’s course is more than 46 kilometers while the women and kids compete on the 30.5-kilometer course.

What to Do

If you have a very fit body and the will to win, you can actually join the competition. It will be the best way to take advantage of the event. Registration forms can be submitted several months before the marathon, so you can still have time to train. You can also arrive in Gold Coast, particularly in Coolangatta, at least a week. This way, you can already practice on the beaches. If you don’t have the gears with you, you can borrow them in rental booths. You can also compete with teams.

However, competing is not the only thing you can do. You can, of course, watch. The best spots to watch them are actually very scenic. These include North Burleigh, Burleigh Heads, Currumbin, and Greenmount Beach. Currumbin also has a wildlife sanctuary that’s worth visiting. It’s even regarded to be one of the best in the country. Families can also gather for some activities after the competition. Expect to hear live bands performing, as well as cafes and restaurants offering great treats for everyone.

At Surfers Paradise, you can check out the beach market that sells organic produce and arts and crafts. You can also proceed to the shopping and entertainment district where most shopping complexes and restaurants are found.

You can bring the kids to nearby attractions including DreamWorld, MovieWorld, and SeaWorld. You can also book a trip to the Hinterland, which will approximately take you around 8 hours. You can visit the gardens, wineries, and art galleries.
