Held on consecutive days, the fun, family friendly, community events showcase the best of Sydney’s Northern Beaches and offer something for every fitness level. Encouraging family and community groups to get involved, competitors can choose from a range of distances and take part as an individual or a team.

Avid walkers and runners will kick off the fitness festivities, pounding the pavement in two spectacular Sun Run events; the km and 10km fun runs along the Northern Beaches’ picturesque coastline. Both distances will start at Dee Why Surf Life Saving Club and finish beside the iconic Manly Life Saving Club.

Following a highly successful inaugural year, which sold out in record time, the Aquathlon will return in 2019, giving participants the chance to challenge themselves across both running and swimming, in one event. Entries are capped at 350 so enter early or risk missing out! Australia’s most historic and famous ocean swim event, the Cole Classic, will return for its 36th year and see entrants taking to Manly’s refreshing ocean waters in 1km, 2km and 5km events, commencing at the beautiful Shelly Beach and finishing in front of Manly Life Saving Club.

For the first time in 2019, the iconic weekend event will introduce a brand new event for kids, the Banana Boat SwimKids Series. Encouraging little swimmers to get involved in one of Australia’s largest ocean swims, mini competitors can choose from a 100m swim/wade event for 7-8 year olds; a 200m swim event for 9 –10 year olds; and a 300m swim event for 11 –12 year olds. The range of short and challenging distances offers something for everyone and provides a way for the community to celebrate the ocean, get fit and have a bit of fun at the same time.
