Newport Pool to Peak Ocean Swim
One of Sydney's favourite swims, hosted by Newport SLSC
Since 2005 the Newport Surf Club’s “Pool to Peak” Ocean Swim has been a favorite in Sydney, Australia!
It is also becoming a favorite destination race for international swimmers too! In fact, the race management team is actively trying to get more international swimmers, to add a bit of global flair! So if you are thinking of travelling to the race from outside of the local area the race management team wants you to feel right at home… by letting you know that you are welcome to use the surf club’s private facilities and hope to see you at the surf club bar too (open Fridays and Sundays). How’s that for some good Aussie hospitality!
This race is “cheap and cheerful”, Aussie-style! Situated on a gorgeous Australian beach just north of Sydney, they usually attract about 650 swimmers each year!
It isn’t that surprising that it is so popular, as it is a well organised, friendly and affordable swim for the whole family! (Well, those over 14 years old at least, the rest will have to cheer until they are old enough!). There are even all kinds of thoughtful little perks like: fresh fruit from Harris Farm Markets given to all swimmers when they finish, massages and prizes for top finishers!
Put all that together with an incredible beach, a picturesque setting and only a short drive from one of the most exciting cities in the world and you have a great little getaway for locals or an amazing destination race for swimmers from around the world!
