The annual Pomona King of the Mountain Festival in the Noosa hinterland town of Pomona, is an all-day, fun filled event!
It is an international Mountain Challenge where competitors run up the face of Mount Cooroora. The race, which has its origins in a bet in a Pomona pub in 1958, takes 100 runners through the town and up the 438m face of the mountain.
This fun festival program includes a lot of fun:
- A 3km Family Fun Run
- Heritage Markets
- Primary School Relay
- Tug O War
- Live music
- Amusement rides
- DELICIOUS FOOD
- Skate Jam Bowls Tournament & MUCH MORE!
The main race is at 2.30pm and is a 4.2km race up the steep, almost vertical face of Mount Cooroora, then back to the town. Entrants come from around Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific Rim and United Kingdom.
Our Munna Beach Apartments are the perfect base for this awesome event held on Sunday 22nd July 2018!
