Cooly Classic Ocean Swim

Sun, 13 May 2018

Join Series Ambassador, Michael Klim, and swimmers from all over Australia for Queensland’s favourite surf swim.

The Cooly Classic offers competitors a rare opportunity to conquer three of Australia’s most revered surf breaks – Snapper Rocks, Coolangatta and Kirra.

Swim courses

Cooly 3.0 (3.0km)

If you‰Ûªre a seasoned ocean swimmer, sometimes 2.0km just isn‰Ûªt enough. Push your limits in the new 3.0km marathon distance course.

The course will follow the 2.0km point to point format with an extra leg added beyond Kirra Point.

Cooly Classic 2.0

The Cooly Classic 2.0 is without doubt the main event. Starting at the popular Snapper Rocks surf break, the course follows the coast north passing Rainbow Bay, Greenmount and Coolangatta enroute to the finish at legendary Kirra Beach.

Cooly 1000

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.
