Mooloolaba Mile Ocean Swim | World Series Swims

Sun March 05, 2017 | Mooloolaba Beach, Sunshine Coast

ENTRIES OPEN: September 22, 2016

The Mooloolaba Mile is a feature on Queensland’s ocean swimming calendar and continues to attract swimmers from all over Australia.

The main event, a one mile (1.6km) course is well within reach for beginners and novice ocean swimmers an ideal step up from traditional short course events.

The 3.0km Marathon distance is a great new option for seasoned swimmers and aspiring triathletes looking to push their limits.

 


THE EVENTS

Marathon Distance (3.0km)

If you’re a seasoned ocean swimmer or aspiring triathlete, push your limits in the 3.0km marathon distance course.

3000m in the ocean is not for the faint hearted, but this course is a great opportunity to go beyond the traditional ocean swim distances.

Mooloolaba Mile (1.6km)

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.

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.

Junior Giants (300m & 800m)

The Junior Giants Series is a great new opportunity for kids aged 8 – 16 years to compete with other swimmers their own age.

We have a short & long course to choose from at every location where all swimmers can enjoy the thrill of a beach sprint finish!  Events at Mooloolaba include:

  • 300m Kids Dash (8 – 16 yrs)
  • 800m Junior Giants (10 – 16 yrs)

We also encourage family and friends to share the experience and swim the course alongside the kids in the 300m Dash.

The 800m event will use the same course format as the 800m Half Mile event.

Every participant receives a free event t-shirt and opportunity for a signing session with Olympic legend, Michael Klim and other special guests.
