Surf Swimming + Training Info

What is surf swimming?

In the run-swim-run event, competitors begin by running a set distance along the beach, then wading and swimming out to sea, around a set of buoys and back to the beach. The race ends with another run to the finish line. A surf race is similar, but with greater emphasis on the swim leg.


Training over the cooler months is conducted at the Burnie Aquatic Centre's indoor 25m pool. As we move into the warmer months training moves to the 50m outdoor pool, alternating between open water swims and pool work throughout the summer.
