Pomona King of the Mountain

Pomona King of the Mountain

The Pomona King of the Mountain Festival held in the Noosa hinterland town of Pomona is a fun-filled event for the whole family, ending with the gruelling Bendigo Bank King of the Mountain Challenge where competitors from around the world run up the steep face of Mount Cooroora.
 
The festival program includes other family-friendly races, a 3km family fun run, heritage markets, antiques fair, tug o war, amusement rides, local cuisine and live music. Festivities begin early with the arrival of car clubs showing off their classic vehicles.  

The 4.2km main race at 2.30pm is a steep, almost vertical climb up the mountain and back. Entrants come from around Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific Rim and the UK to compete. Celebrations continue afterwards and into the evening with live music and free entertainment.

There's also the inaugural Prince & Princess race on Saturday 22 July for children aged 9-13, with prizes up for grabs and the opportunity to present the main race winner with their trophy on the Sunday.

The festival is a project of The Cooroy & Pomona Lion’s Club.
