The Pomona King of the Mountain Festival includes a 3km Family Fun Run, Mountain Bike Ride, Heritage Markets, Antiques and Collectables Fair, Primary School
Relay, Tug O War, live music, buskers, amusement rides, side show alley and food court - and it all culminates with the Bendigo Bank International
Mountain Challenge ... watch as 100 competitors run up the face of Mount Cooroora.
The main race will be held at 2.30pm - it's a steep, 4.2km, almost vertical climb up the mountain and back. Entrants come from all over Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific Rim and the United Kingdom, with a strong rivalry between Australia and New Zealand participants.
Runners start from the centre of the Noosa hinterland township of Pomona and head bush towards Mount Cooroora. A set of low hills confronts runners before they take on the mountain track which is little more than a goat track.
