The Noosa Summer Swim - Noosa Heads | Saturday Feb 01, 2014
Queensland Ocean Swim Series | Event #1
The Noosa Summer Swim is the latest addition to the Milk & Co Queensland Ocean Swim Series and will launch the 2014 Series in the heart of the Queensland summer, on Saturday February 1st.
The event includes classic ocean swimming distances, 2km & 1km, along with a 300m Nippers Surf Dash.
The Noosa Summer Swim also includes an exciting new Teams Relay format where your team of three will take on celebrities and multisport athletes from around Australia.
Elite prize money is up for grabs at every event in the 2014 Series – compete in both the long course and short course and you'll be in to win the overall cash prize (male & female).
Join Series Ambassador Michael Klim on the start line and dive into summer!
The Noosa 2.0km is the main event and will be contended by some of Australia's most talented pool and open water swimmers.
All swimmers in the 2.0km event will choose their own wave start groups, so for those taking on their first long course event, there is an option to start with friends and other weekend warriors!
The Noosa 1.0km short course option is a perfect introduction for less experienced ocean swimmers, starting and finishing in the same location as the 2.0km. The calm, sheltered waters of Noosa are excellent for all abilities, so this short course is an ideal stepping stone before the Mooloolaba Mile long course (1.6km)
This 300m Kids Dash is a great opportunity for kids to get involved in open water swimming. They'll also get the chance to enjoy the thrill of a beach sprint finish!
This is a free, fun event for kids aged 8 years and older. We also encourage family & friends to share the experience and swim the course alongside the kids.
Every participant receives a Finishers Certificate signed by Event Ambassador, Michael Klim.
The Noosa Summer Swim includes an exciting new addition – the Teams Sprint Relay.
Your team of three will go head to head with celebrities and multisport athletes from around Australia, including Series Ambassador Michael Klim.
All groups, including corporate teams, swimming clubs and training squads are encouraged to enter and all proceeds from entries will go to the winning team's charity of choice.
The 3 x 300m course will make for a great spectacle so be sure to stick around!
*Note: Entries will be restricted to the first 30 teams to register.
Trophies and product prizes will be awarded to the winners of each event and in 2014, elite swimmers will have the opportunity to compete for the overall Noosa Summer Swim Championship.
A $500 cash prize will be awarded to the male and female with the best overall results in both the short course and long course events. In the event of a points tie, the winner will be determined by the best combined times.
The Noosa Summer Swim courses are designed to allow your support crew (family and friends) to set up camp for the day and watch you start and finish your swim. All events start and finish in the heart of Main Beach at Noosa Heads.
