Ready, Set…


Charity relays, 3 kilometre swims and a Kid’s Dash are some of the ways participants can enjoy the 2015 Noosa Summer Swim on this Saturday 31 January. Compete against locals, athletes from around the country and even celebrities in one of the many swim races held at this year’s event.

This is the first year the 3 kilometre swim is offered in the event, which will be hosting its traditional 1k and 2k swims. The free 300 metre Kid Surf Dash is a great opportunity for kids to get involved in open water swimming – it’s a free, fun event for kids aged 8 years and older. Noosa’s calm waters are perfect for swimming, so it’s a great place for beginners and professionals alike.

The Teams Charity Relay is another new addition for 2015, where teams of three compete with celebrities and national athletes. Then all entrance proceeds are donated to a charity chosen by the winning team.

Competitor check-in begins at 8:30 am, with a safety briefing held two hours later. Events begin with the 300m Kids Dash at 11, the 3km Start at 11:15, 2 km start at noon, and the 1 km start at 1 pm. The Teams Charity Relay begins at 1:30 with presentations an hour later. An after party will be held at 7 pm at Miss Moneypenny’s on Hastings Street.
