The Mooloolaba Mile begins at Mooloolaba’s South-Eastern end (The Spit) and follows an M shaped path north towards the finish line near the Mooloolaba SLSC and famous Loo-with-a-view.
The Mooloolaba 3.0 starts and finishes in front of the Loo-with-a-view. The course follows the shore down to The Spit, then links with the Mooloolaba Mile course to return.
Half Mile swimmers will join the Mooloolaba Mile course at the halfway mark, swim out behind the breakers to the final turn then back to the beach for a sprint to the finish.
300m Junior Giants swimmers will start a short distance from the Finish Area and complete one circuit of a 300m course. Your course may be altered on event day to ensure the best possible conditions for all swimmers.
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 endeavour to offer a shortened, 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.
