Description

The event will consist of 2 separate race formats that will take place at the same time.

The ‘main’ event (Individual or Team Race) is a 600m swim followed by a 5km run.

The ‘dash’ event (Individual Race only) is a 300m swim followed by a 2.5km run.

Swim leg: The course is a triangular loop (clockwise) around the outside of the buoys positioned in the bay. Competitors will exit the swim at the point marked ‘Swim Exit’ and proceed to transition area. The 600m swim consists of 2 loops whilst the ‘dash’ entrants complete 1 loop.

Run leg: The run course is two laps along the paved foot/bike path which initially heads east towards St Kilda. Each lap is 2.5km and is an ‘out back looped course’. (The ‘dash’ run leg will consist of just 1 lap).

Presentations will commence 10 Mins after the last competitor finishes at approximately 10:15 am (whichever is later).

Due to the ‘dash event’ being a new format this year and to save on overall entry costs medals will only be presented to the ‘winner’ of each age category.

Parking is available next to the Sandridge LSC, or 100 metres away beside the ‘Life Saving Victoria Headquarters’ building.
