The Coolangatta Gold 2018 will again feature a short and long-course option for competitors, with the elite Open Male and Female races to be contested over the legendary 41.8km course from Coolangatta to Broadbeach and back.
In 2018, for only the second time, the short course will see competitor’s race over a 21km highly entertaining one transition course which will launch the weekend of racing.
The youth event also return’s this year, specifically designed for our aspiring lifesavers and future ocean and beach event competitors (under 11’s to under 16’s) who are up for a challenge and keen to be part of the main event experience.
The youth course consists of a 300m soft sand run, a 400m swim, 400m run, 500m board and then a 50m run to conclude under the elite finish arch.
Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA) is encouraging teams of up to four, to enter the race and share the four disciplines of ski, board, swim and run.
