Participant Info


Sunday March 21, 7:12am

A final conditions assessment was done at 6:30am this morning and the final course configuration for today has now been confirmed.

This course is more manageable for our Surf Life Saving teams in these conditions and therefore a safer course for all swimmers in all distances.

All courses start and finish at Mooloolaba Spit and all course distances will still be offered.

Our Check-in Site will also be located at Mooloolaba Spit.

*Time Change: the 1.6km Moololaba Mile now starts at 11:00am (was 11:30am)

The Park and Go carpark on Brisbane Road offers all day parking at reasonable rates.

There is a combination of 2 hour parking and all day parking along Parkyn Parade, but these are limited and it may be congested here.
