Mooloolaba Mile Ocean Swim | World Series Swims

February 04 & 05, 2018 | Mooloolaba Beach, Sunshine Coast

2017 RESULTS >>

In 2018, the program of events will expand with some great new distances, held over two days at Mooloolaba Beach.

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.

The Mooloolaba Mile program now includes a 3.0km long course, perfect for seasoned swimmers and aspiring triathletes looking to push their limits.

Package entries are available to swim in the 3.0km Long Course and the Mooloolaba Mile later in the morning.

 


THE EVENTS

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 3.0 (3.0km)

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