The King of the Mountain Festival in Pomona, Queensland is an all-day event for the whole family, climaxing with the Bendigo Bank International Mountain Challenge where competitors run up the face of Mount Cooroora.

The festival program includes a 3km Family Fun Run, Heritage Markets, the Primary School Relay, Tug O War (for Primary School Children and Corporate Tug O War for local businesses & sports clubs), live music on the Pomona IGA stage, buskers, amusement rides, sideshow alley and a relaxing food court area.

The main race, The Bendigo Bank International Mountain Challenge, is a steep, almost vertical climb up the mountain, 4.2km race to the top of 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.

King of the Mountain Festival routes

Icon
The runners commence climbing a set of low hills before confronting the mountain. The track up the mountain is little more than a goat track, with parts now modified with steps. In some places, it is only wide enough for one or two runners. The mountain provides a steep almost vertical climb. The return down the mountain requires strength, agility, a good sense of balance, and an immunity to fear. The course, and indeed the race, has to be seen to be believed!
