Register now for the annual Byron Bay Ocean Swim Classic, Sunday the 4th of May 2014.
With a history going back as far as 1988 this annual swim from beautiful Wategos Beach to the shores of Main Beach, has been held to raise money for selected charities and local organisations.
In 2008 an addition was made with the introduction of an 800 metre course from Clarkes Beach to Main Beach for the junior ocean swimmers.
The swim draws ocean swimmers from all over the country and in 2012 won the Byron Shire Community Event of the Year.
Swimmers are placed in male and female age categories, with an elite category leading the charge.
Those over 12 years can enter The Byron Bay Property Sales Ocean Swim Classic – approximately 2km.
Swimmers 9 years plus are welcome to swim in The Ky Hurst Mini Swim.
The swim is a great day for the participants and their friends and families, who gather on the beach and grassy area of Main Beach to cheer the swimmers as they cross the finish line.
For all the details visit Byron Bay Ocean Swim Classic.
Book your Byron Bay accommodation at Byron Quarter, walking distance to the event base in Main Beach.
