Swim the Gold Coast | Marathon Swim

Sat May 28, 2022 | Gold Coast, Queensland

SWIM THE GOLD COAST is 21.5km marathon swim for teams and individuals.

The course spans the length of the Gold Coast, from Coolangatta Beach in the South, to the iconic cityscape of Surfers Paradise in the North.

In 2022 there’ll be some new additions, including easier qualifying rules for Solo swimmers and new Team categories for 3, 4, 5 or 6 swimmers.

Check our course animation and entry options below…

Entry Options

Solo + Tandem Solo Swim | 21.5km

A marathon distance swim is the pinnacle for any open water swimmer and this course is one of the most picturesque you will find. From the stunning beaches of the Southern Gold Coast, past Burleigh Headland, Broadbeach and finishing under the towering cityscape of Surfers Paradise – it’s a stunning backdrop.

Every Solo swimmer requires a support boat and a qualified skipper. You don’t need to have your Support Crew confirmed when you enter the event, but it is a mandatory requirement for event day.

There is also a ‘Tandem Solo’ option, allowing Solo swimmers to share a Support Boat.  There are some strict conditions surrounding this option, as this requires swimmers to swim together in close proximity to the Support Boat (see ‘Event Rules’)

  • Both Tandem Solo swimmers must secure their own Solo Entry and nominate their Tandem Solo partner when entering
  • Field Limit:  150 swimmers

Duo Teams

The Duo is a two person team, allowing you and a friend to alternate and conquer the Gold Coast together. Like the Team of Four, a Duo Team can swim multiple legs of any distance.

If the full solo distance is a stretch for 2022, find a buddy and enter a Duo team – this will also count towards qualifying for a Solo attempt in 2023.

All Duo Teams require a support boat and a qualified skipper. You don’t need to have your Support Crew confirmed when you enter the event, but it is a mandatory requirement for event day.

  • Team Members: 2 Swimmers + 1 Boat Skipper
  • Field Limit:  50 Teams

Teams

The Teams event is the heart and soul of SWIM THE GOLD COAST, the boat ride alone will be epic!

In 2022, we’re making it even easier to put together a team, with options for 3, 4, 5 or 6 members.

The 21.5km distance can be broken up into multiple legs of any distance, so your team can be made up of all abilities. Swim 500m, 5.0km or 15km – your team decides who swims when and for how long.

All Teams require a support boat and a qualified skipper. You don’t need to have your Support Crew confirmed when you enter the event, but it is a mandatory requirement for event day.

  • Categories: 3-4 Swimmers OR 5-6 Swimmers (Entry & Results)
  • Team Members: 3-6 Swimmers + 1 Boat Skipper
  • Field Limit:  50 Teams
