The 650m Event
The 650m Intermediate Swim is for Junior swimmers who have previously completed the Junior Dash and wish to swim in an intermediate event and for juniors and adults prefering a shorter event. http://greataustraliadayswim.com.au/web/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=page
The course is from the Northern end of the Royal Brighton Yacht Club marina toward the pier and then to the finish gate on the beach in front of the yacht Club. It is in relatively sheltered water behind the marina and breakwater. See the course map below.
Please allow sufficient time to walk from the pier through the yacht club marina to the start.
Spectators will not be allowed inside the marina for security reasons, but the pier and the walkways provide an unrivalled spectator viewing area for most of the course. Music and food stalls will be provided on the lawns adjoining the pier and baths.
The Intermediate Swim will have two separate events for Juniors age under 16 and for Adults and Juniors over age 16.
Swimmers will receive a colour-coded swim cap and a gear bag containing Nivea Sunscreen and a sports bar. At the finish, swimmers will receive a Bulk Nutrients sports drink or water, fruit and frozen yoghurt.
The on-line entry price includes a raffle ticket for a travel and accommodation package to Bali and secondary prizes (total value $4,000), for the first 1,000 swimmers in the Open Water events. Other random prizes for swimmers will be drawn during the day.
The first 1,000 entrants in the Open Water events will also receive a Swimland Great Australia Day Swim T Shirt.
