Coogee Courage Multisport Festival will become one of Sydney’s iconic fitness events., What an opportunity to run, swim, walk and get amongst Coogee with your friends, your family and even your neighbours. Whether it’s to challenge yourself, to have some fun, or to raise funds for the Royal Hospital For Women Foundation, the Coogee Courage Multisport Festival has something for everyone. The Coogee Courage Multisport Festival comprises the Coogee Climb For The Royal and the Coogee Island Challenge.
The Coogee Climb For The Royal is an uphill run starting at Trenerry Reserve, and will see participants ascend Coogees’ steepest hill. The hill is some 450 Metres in length and in some sections the gradient is 13%. Attendees will be treated to a start line festival, located at Trenerry Park with food trucks, live entertainment, big screens showing action on the hill and the finish line, merchandise, exhibitors, VIP hospitality and more.
The Coogee Island Challenge attracts more than 1,000 swimmers taking part in the annual 800m Junior Dash, the 1km Open Water Swim or the main event, the 2.4km Open Water Swim around Wedding Cake Island.
The Coogee Courage Multisport Festival will include the King and Queen of Coogee titles, a “crowning glory” that can be earned by competing in both the Coogee Climb For The Royal on Saturday April 13 and the 2.4km Coogee Island Challenge swim on Sunday April 14. The man and woman with the lowest aggregate time across both events will be crowned the King of Coogee and the Queen of Coogee, adding to the Royal theme of the Festival.
