Collaroy Beach Ocean Swim
Early season swim on Sydney's northern beaches. Collaroy is a revelation. It's an open beach, but it's nestled inside the northern corner of Long Reef headland. The course is a circuit over patches of reef with lots of sea life. It really is a lovely swim.
And, new this year, a 300m swim for kids aged 8-10.
Registration - Enter online, then check in on race day 7:30-8:30am (800m) and 7:30-9:30 (1.5km). You also can enter on race day, but at a premium to the online entry fee.
Entry fee - Either swim - $30, or $45 for both (Race day entry - $40 either swim, or $55 for both). 300m Minis swim is $10. Mini 300m + 800m (10yo only) is $40.
Online entries close - 3pm, Saturday, November 13, 2021
Under 18 swimmers - Parents/guardians of swimmers aged under 18 must complete the online entry form, not the swimmers themselves. They must include their consent to the entry with full name and phone contact. Just a phone number, a first name, or a number and first name will not do. Entries of U18 swimmers are not complete without this complete parental/guardian consent. Entries of swimmers aged under 18 (U18) must use the parent's email address, not that of the U18 swimmer.
Conditions - Collaroy is an open, exposed beach with banks, gutters, rips which vary in intensity with swell size and direction, winds and the state of the tide. It receives some protection from the worst of the southerly weather from Long Reef Headland. The swim follows a circuit from the beach, crossing myriad reefs separated by a sandy bottom.
Minimum age - 14 (1.5km), 10 (800m), 8-10 (300m)
Phone contact - Be sure to enter a valid Australian mobile number with your entry online. Organisers may decide to send sms messages to entrants advising of changes to event arrangments. If you don't leave a valid Australian mobile number, you won't receive them.
