Noosa Open Day | World Series Swims

Spring: Sat Nov 12, 2016 | Noosa Heads, Queensland

The Noosa Open Day is a relaxed, social event and only as competitive as you want it to be.

It’s the perfect opportunity to bring some friends along and introduce them to open water swimming, as well as:

  • Step up in distance and try a 5.0km course
  • Train like a pro and do as many distances as you like (Day Passes available – any event)
  • Try an ocean swim in a relaxed, social atmosphere (events are not timed)
  • Swim with fins / flippers (which you often can’t at a timed event)

Course Options

The course will be a simple, single lane spanning the width of Noosa Main Beach.

Swimming out into the open ocean can be a daunting challenge, so we’re keeping this one close to shore – it’s as close to a pool lane as you’ll get in the ocean.

There are four options to choose from:

  • 1.0km (1 lap)
  • 2.0km (2 laps)
  • 3.0km (3 laps)
  • 5.0km (5 laps)

5.0km Swimmers – a time limit of 2 hours will be in place for the 5km course.  If you cannot comfortably complete 5km in a pool in under 2 hours, please consider a shorter option on event day.

Events will NOT be timed (no results), but our regular water safety crew and medical teams will be in place to provide a safe environment for you to challenge yourself.
