Open Water Swim
Every night 150m, 400m, 730m, 1300m, 2000m and 2500m (for events 3 & 5) options are available. The Longest distance each night counts toward series points. You must be able to complete a 2000m swim within 45 minutes to enter that event.
Do you want to really challenge yourself in 2019?
For events 3 and 5 we are introducing a longer openwater swim event called the Pt. Jerningham swim. This will be a 2.5km out and back open water swim course (There will be no 2km swim course option on those nights)
Cost will be $35
You can choose your swim distance on the night, and even change during your event. And you can choose a half distance run. The 2000m swim is not available as a Swim Run option. Only the bold swim distance counts for points in the Series Champion Race.

Keep in mind Oriental Parade can get pretty busy on fine days in the middle of summer, and it may be easier and quicker to walk from town if you already have a car parked in there.
Entries are open online until the start on event day. You will get a race number which relates to your race chip. Pick it up on arrival and you are ready to go.
Entry on the night is cash only and we do NOT have EFTPOS / CC facilities.
