The North Bondi Classic takes place within the boundaries of the iconic Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia! It has been one of the prime races on the Sydney ocean swims events calendar since the mid ’90’s! Proof of that is the fact that over 2,000 swimmers swim this race every year!
With a 1km and 2km option for age groups in 5 year intervals and a “Back of the Pack” group who can use flippers, snorkels, wetsuits or other flotation devices to give then confidence to take part – it is a true community swim.
This year there will also be a “couples division.” Great prizes for the couples division as well as a random draw for everyone for a “trip for two to Hawaii!”
Bondi Beach is one of the most famous beaches in the world and a National Heritage site! The race is put on by the North Bondi Surf Lifesaving Club, which has been around since 1907. Bondi Beach is known for is swimming and surfing and only 7 km from downtown Sydney. With all this going for it, it is not a hard sell for locals, or visitors, to make this a “must” open water race!
