Are you ready for Queensland’s #1 short course ocean swim? The Mooloolaba Mile Ocean Swim is the most popular open water swim for both beginners and experienced swimmers.
The beauty of it is that it’s a one-mile (1.6km) course that is suitable for all kinds of swimmers. Plus, it’s great fun!
This coming year, The Mooloolaba Mile Ocean Swim is getting bigger and better with the inclusion of a 3km long course that is perfect for more experienced swimmers and aspiring triathletes.
The Mooloolaba Mile Ocean Swim will begin at Mooloolabas South-Eastern end (The Spit). The one-mile course will follow an M-shaped path that will go north towards the finish line. On the other hand, the long course (or 3km swim) is for those who want to push their limits. It’s a 3km open water swim that aims to go beyond the traditional swim distances.
For those who want a more leisurely swim, there is the Mooloolaba Half Mile (800m). The course is designed for beginners who are testing their abilities.. The course does not need training that is as extensive as the first two events.
Do your kids love to swim? There are also swim events for them during the Mooloolaba Mile Ocean Swim! There are two Junior Giants events – 300m and 800m swims. This is a great opportunity for kids ages 8 to 16 years old to experience competitive swimming (Kids Dash). There is also a Junior Giants dash which is an 800m dash for kids ages 10 to 16 years. The 800m event will use the same course as the Half Mile event.
There is a complimentary event shirt that will be given as a token of gratitude for joining the swim.
The swim will be on 5 March 2017 at the Mooloolaba Beach. The event starts at 8am at the Mooloolaba Beach.
There are more fun things to do during the event as well! There will be stretch yoga that will be led by yoga guru Kat Harding before the swim. You will be learning stretching designed for swimmers, yoga for beginners, and some advanced poses. All you have to bring is a beach towel to take part on this yoga session on the beach.
You will also get an opportunity to meet and greet Olympic legend, Michael Klim and other special guests!
There will also be Speedo product vouchers for the winners of the events. Major prizes include 2XU race wetsuits that will be given away through a raffle. For the big event, the Mooloolaba Mile, the first place winner gets an annual trophy plus $500.
There’s so many great things to do during the Mooloolaba Mile Ocean Swim! It’s a great opportunity to gain more experience in competitive swimming and of course, it’s a great event to have loads of fun!
