The 1.25km Summer Swim is a simple point-to-point format, starting from the sheltered waters of Greenmount Beach and finishing at Kirra Beach, home of the Cooly Classic.
You’ll have some surf to help you in at the finish (Kirra Beach), but Greenmount is generally sheltered, so the start will be manageable for all experience levels. The natural sweep from right to left will also provide some assistance around to Kirra Beach.
We’re also offering a 1.75km ‘Step Up’ distance, an extra 500m on top of the Summer Swim. This course provides a stepping stone to build towards a 2km or longer distances.
As with any event in the ocean, we are at the mercy of the weather gods and therefore late course changes may be necessary. In the event of extreme weather we will endeavor to offer an alternative course so please do not assume that the event is cancelled completely if the forecast is less than ideal.
We will post updates on our Facebook page leading up to the event if extreme weather is expected.
If there are any significant changes to the venue or program due to weather, we will notify you as early as possible on the email address you have supplied during the entry process.
