SUNDAY MARCH 03
10:45am Mooloolaba Mile (1.6km)
This is the big one. One Mile (1.6km) is the most popular open water distance around the globe for a reason – it’s well within reach for beginners and a great time trial for experienced swimmers.
Beginning at Mooloolaba’s South-Eastern end (The Spit), the One Mile course (1.6km) follows an M shaped path north towards the finish line. The first turn is located directly out from the start near the Mooloolah river mouth. Midway, the course brings swimmers back towards the breakers then out again to the final turn.
10:15am Mooloolaba Half Mile (800m)
From juniors testing themselves in the open water to groups of friends battling it out for bragging rights, the Mooloolaba Half Mile (800m) can be achieved with limited training and is loads of fun!
You’ll join the Mooloolaba Mile course at the halfway mark and round the final turn before hitting the sand for a sprint to the finish.
9:30am Junior Giants (300m)
The Junior Giants events are a great opportunity for kids aged 8 – 16 years to compete with other swimmers their own age.
We also encourage family and friends to share the experience and swim the course alongside the kids in the 300m Dash.
