Noosa Enduro

The Noosa Enduro

Sunday 14 July 2024

The history of the Noosa Enduro is woven into the fabric of local event folklore; the event was started by the team behind the iconic Noosa Triathlon more than a decade ago and made its re-entry onto the event calendar in 2021.

Heading back to the hinterland in 2024, this slick one-day cycling festival has multiple events on offer to suit all levels. The course has been updated again this year and follows the Noosa Biosphere Trails almost entirely. There are also categories for the booming gravel and e-bike categories, as well as a kids’ race and an event village.

Setting off from the township of Tewantin, the Noosa Enduro heads deep into the forestry towards the towns of Kin Kin, Cooran and Cooroy before tackling the formidable Mothar Mountain- a chance to test your legs, or engage the motor on your e-Bike, depending on your perspective! Finish back in Tewantin with a well-deserved cold beer in the buzzing event village, with craft beer stalls and food trucks, live entertainment, and kids' learn-to-ride sessions by Wheely Fun Camps.

There are various events on offer across the day, with distances from 30 - 100 km to choose from. This year, don’t miss the Noosa Gravel Enduro, a non-competitive 100km category you can enter alongside your mates, designed to be ridden exclusively on a gravel bike.
