Aquathon is a swim followed by a run and super fun!
‘Kids Aqua’ distance is just for kids 7-12 years of age and draws our largest cheers. Hundreds take part and we go all out to make it a safe and fun experience.
Swim+run on your own, team style (one swimmer and one runner) and parents can tag along and help U10’s too.
All finishers recieve a medal.

Swim: U10’s 120m / 10-12’s 200m
Kids are treated to a safe and fun swim, carefully watched and supported by our amazing lifesavers the whole way. Start on shoreline of Wollongong harbour, kids swim a rectangular course and keep no more than 60m off shore. U12’s follow a 20om course and the U10’s drops to 120m. Parents of U10 children are welcome to swim alongside but please keep you and your child at the ‘back of pack’ for safety.
Please ensure your child/ren are able to swim the distance ‘unaided’ to meet entry conditions.

It’s flat, safe and fun -follows the coastline all along the beautiful ‘blue mile’ track to north beach and back.
