Swimming NSW Summer Swim Leader Board

In 2018 Cole Classic has teamed up with four other Sydney based ocean swims to create the Swimming NSW Summer Swim Leader Board in the summer of 2017/2018.

Earn points and be part of the leader board by competing in one or all of the five included races. The more events you enter, the more points you get! There is no additional fee to participate in the series, all you need to do is register in the Cole Classic 5km ocean swim to participate in the Summer Swim Leader Board.

Below are the five swims that are part of the series:

Race Location Date
Coogee to Bondi Coogee December 9, 2017
SNSW Open Water Championships* Regatta Centre Penrith December 10, 2017

* Open to all non-SNSW members.

A presentation will be held after the completion of the final race (the Cole Classic) with prizes awarded to overall male and female winners. To view the current Leader Board, please click here.
