We know that nothing compares to the real thing, but our Swim the Gold Coast Virtual Event will allow you to achieve your goals and see your result alongside all other swimmers, plus new guests from around the world.
All ‘virtual’ swim distances are based on a start at Coolangatta Beach, the same as the real event, but we’ve tweaked our distances to align with popular goals (2km, 5km, 10km):
If you did your own private swim after the postponement on May 29, we’ll make that swim count – you’ll still need to register using the code emailed to you.
You’ll have 30 days to complete a swim then update your entry records with the details.
Once you have registered for the Virtual Event and created an EventPlus account, you can log back in after your swim and add the details.
We’ll publish a ‘Leaderboard’ weekly on the World Series Swims website, then final results will be displayed on Sept 21.
We also need proof of your swim time and distance. This can be a link to a GPS file, or a image / screenshot etc.
The details we will require from you are:
You don’t need to live in the same location to compete as a team. Swim your own swim, in your own State, then your Team Captain can list the times and distances for each team member.
Each team member needs to have an allocated swim distance – all distances must total 21km.
If you swim further than your allocated distance, just average out your time per KM and record that.
Each team member needs to register in order to receive their merchandise pack.
Merchandise Packs will be posted to you. Below is a guide of when you can expect to receive them:
NB: packs cannot be posted to addresses outside Australia
If you were registered for May 29 or the rescheduled date, August 21, your entry is free of charge.
The below entry fees apply for those who wish to enter.
2km swimmers receive an official result, but not Merchandise Packs.
Swimmers in the 5km, 10km & 21km distances receive over $50.00 in merchandise / race items which will be posted to you, including:
NB: A discount code can be provided to international swimmers who cannot receive Merchandise Packs.
Entries now closed.
We’ll be updating our results page weekly, as swimmers upload their swims to their EventPlus account (online entry system)
