MAY 6TH  – Byron Bay Ocean Swim

This year will be the 31st year running for the annual charity Byron Bay Property Sales Ocean Swim. A fantastic event that kicks off from beautiful Watego’s beach, finishing at Main Beach Byron Bay. The course is approximately 2.2km long. One of Australia’s most iconic ocean swims, set to the beautiful Byron Bay backdrop.

For the kids or anyone that would prefer to swim a shorter distance, there is the Mitre 10 Mini Swim. This swim starts at Clarkes Beach and finishes at Main Beach. A great introductory swim for novices. Children must be age 9 or up to enter.

Make sure you register to swim before the day> https://www.byronbayoceanswimclassic.com.au/index.php

 

MAY 12th & 13th  – Byron Bay Triathlon & Mother’s Day

Come and enjoy a holiday in Byron Bay for the annual Byron Bay Triathlon and Mother’s Day!

Byron Bay offers an idyllic world-class location for this iconic event, which also falls on the Mother’s Day weekend. A great time to organise an extended stay!

The Byron Bay Triathlon is now in its 23rd year. It is an Olympic distance event and attracts around 1200 competitors from many different countries.

Traditionally it is held on Mother’s Day weekend every year and is the last race in the NSW/QLD triathlon calendar. This means a huge end of season party on Saturday night at Byron Bay Surf Club. Taking advantage of the triathlon’s spectacular location, many competitors bring their family and stay on for an extra few days, to enjoy some much-needed relaxation time.

Athletes can enter either individually or as part of a team. Competitors can enter the Olympic Track event where you swim 1.5km in the ocean at Main Beach, cycle 40km and run 10km. If this is too much for you there are all different levels you can enter – ‘The Tempta’ being a good one to enter if it’s your first triathlon. For the second year running, they now have a kids triathlon, making it truly a family-friendly event.

Spoil Mum and book an extended getaway in Byron Bay!
