24 Years Of Coolangatta Gold For Sold Out

We are very proud to have just delivered the 13th Coolangatta Gold, which is not only one of Australia’s most iconic events, but also one of the longest running events of our company.

Sold Out was founded from the requirement to support Surf Life Saving Australia and we have been supporting the Surf Life Saving Community for over 24 years, making it one of the longest partnerships in the Australian sporting industry.

Congratulations to all 2017 Coates Hire “Coolie Gold” winners, including defending champions, Ali Day and Courtney Hancock, who proved unstoppable for another year, claiming the Men and Women’s titles for the 41.8km ultimate challenge.

An event highlight was Christopher Wagner who crossed the finish line after a mammoth 7hours 30 minutes. South African born Christopher has cerebral palsy who proved that the only limit to our success is ourselves. Wagner completed a 23km Ski, 2.1km Run, 3.5km Swim, 6.1km Board, 7.1km Run (on beach), totalling 41.8km – incredible!

Of course, well done to all competitors, organisers and volunteers on yet another successful event in front of a record crowd at our stunning Gold Coast.

Bring on the Coolie Gold 2018!
