The Cooly Classic - Coolangatta Ocean Swim | March 30, 2014
Queensland Ocean Swim Series | Event #4
Join swimmers from all over Australia for the Gold Coast's premier ocean swim.
The Cooly Classic 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.
Every participant receives a Finishers Certificate signed by Event Ambassador, Michael Klim.
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 Cooly Classic Championship.
A $500 cash prize will be awarded to the male and female with the best overall results in both the 2.0km & 1.0km events. In the event of a points tie, the winner will be determined by the best combined times.
