Battle of the Beach

Written by Craig Wright on . Posted in News

The annual Battle of the Beach returns for 2014! This year, we challenge Sorrento Surf Club to a good old North Coast Aquathlon on Friday 7th February 2014! Lets hope those refined running legs of the triathletes can knock off the super fish from the surf club!

The camaraderie between all competitors from our clubs is awesome and it has been  brilliant to see how many members of both clubs take up this challenge in recent years.

The details are as follows:

Fri 7th Feb, 6.15pm Start. All competitors go at the same time.


Swim 1            South of the middle groyne to north of the northern groyne (300m)

Run 1              Along the water’s edge to the Marina wall and back to a point halfway between the middle and northern groyne (1000m)

Swim 2            Halfway between the middle and northern groyne to north of the northern groyne (200m)

Transition south along the back of the beach, up the driveway and then left onto the grass.

When running on the grass competitors must have a top on and you must have runners (footwear) on.

Ladies are already classified as having a top on.

No outside assistance with water bottles, gels or helping competitors to change.

Run 2              Along the grass to the northern end of the grassed area and return, 3 laps (2400m)

Points scoring.

The first five competitors in each of six age groups will score points.

1st – 5 points through to 5th – 1 point.

Total of 90 points on offer.

The team who scores most points wins.

Age groups are

Female             13 – 19

Male                13 – 19

Female             20 – 39

Male                20 – 39

Female             40 plus

Male                40 plus

If one club has only one / two competitors in an age group then only one / two competitors from the other team can score points in that age group.

All competitors must register their name on the entry lists before 6.10pm.

All competitors need a swim cap and their race number on their wrist.
