The Sunshine Coast Spring Swim, Presented by Milk & Co, offers distances for every ability, a simple course layout for kids and beginners and longer events for competitive swimmers and triathletes in training.
Choose a distance, get training and kick-start your summer!
Test your mettle in a 5.0km marathon distance swim at one of nature’s great open water arenas – Mooloolaba Beach.
A 5.0km open water swim is not for the faint-hearted, but this course allows you to break up the longer distance into smaller, more achievable legs with a beach exit and simple configuration.
This event is a great training goal for any ability. For the seasoned swimmers and triathletes, use this as a stepping stone for the summer ahead or a hit-out before your next event.
If you think 2.5km might be a stretch, use our transition halfway to check your progress before tackling the return leg.
The 1.25km short course is the perfect introduction for less experienced ocean swimmers. The course starts at the Southern end of Mooloolaba Beach (The Spit) and is a straight line down to the finish.
A simple beach start, flat water, straight course…easy.
Junior Giants (300m & 1.25km)
The Junior Giants events are a great opportunity for kids aged 8 – 16 years to compete with other swimmers their own age. We have a short & long course to choose from
We also encourage family and friends to share the experience and swim the course alongside the kids in the 300m Dash.
The 1.25km event will use the same course format as the Short Course event.
Every participant receives a free event t-shirt and a chance to win some great Speedo and 2XU prizes.
