The Cooly Classic - Coolangatta Ocean Swim | April 7, 2013
Join swimmers from all over Australia for Queensland's favourite surf swim.
The Cooly Classic is fast becoming Queensland's premier ocean swim and offers competitors a rare opportunity to conquer three of Australia's most revered surf breaks - Snapper Rocks, Coolangatta and Kirra.
Whether you're an elite swimmer looking for the ultimate surf challenge, or a newcomer to ocean swimming, the Cooly Classic has an option for you.
The main event starts at the popular Snapper Rocks surf break and follows the coast north passing Rainbow Bay, Greenmount and Coolangatta enroute to the finish at legendary Kirra Beach.
The Cooly 1000 is a 1.0km short course option from Coolangatta to Kirra Beach. This is a perfect introduction for less experienced ocean swimmers and retains the popular point-to-point format.
This event is the perfect introduction to open water swimming for kids and also gives them an opportunity 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.
The Cooly Classic course was also designed to allow your support crew (family and friends) to follow your progress and walk the beach before meeting you at the finish line. We encourage you to invite your family and friends and take a great day out at on the Southern Gold Coast...only a 1hr 15 min drive from Brisbane.
