Charity Event

The Bondi Splash N Dash raises funds for local youth charity WAYS (Waverly Action Youth Services), a local youth outreach centre.

The Duck Dash

Participants with fins start in front of the Bondi Pavilion and run to the transition point at North Bondi where they inflate their own inflatable duck and swim with their duck out around a buoy before coming back into shore. Participants finish with their fins and duck.


Run from the corner at South Bondi and finishing at North; swim from the North corner to a buoy near Ben Buckler Point, before making a right-hand turn towards the south. At a buoy off the Bondi Icebergs, they’ll take another right hand turn towards shore. From shore, they will run 1 km before crossing the line at North Bondi.
