Aquathon Event Option

An aquathon consists of an ocean swim followed by a run. The course at Corsair Bay offers a safe and usually calm swim course followed by a slightly challenging off road run which includes some short sharp climbs and some gentle flat terrain on the 4×4 track leading down to Corsair Bay. We offer two options for Aquathon competiors, the short aquathon and long aquathon. The short aquathon competitors start in the wave with the short swimmers and the long aquathon starts with the medium ocean swimmers. Below is a list of the distances for each category each week.
