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 and is an ideal step up from traditional short course events.
The Mooloolaba 3.0 is a great option for seasoned swimmers and anyone looking to push their limits.
Events: 800m Junior Giants, 800m, 1.6km, 3.0km
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.
The Mooloolaba 3.0 is a popular distance and a great step up in distance from shorter swims.
This long course bay swim starts and finishes in the same location at Mooloolaba Beach.
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.
The Junior Giants events are a great opportunity for kids aged 10 – 16 years to compete with other swimmers their own age.
The Mooloolaba Mile Junior Giants course will follow the Half Mile course and finish on Mooloolaba Beach.
It’s just more fun in a team!
