Event Day Race Pack Collection

We encourage all Cole Classic participants who are collecting their Race Pack on Sunday morning to arrive at least 1 hour prior to their start wave time. This is to ensure all participants have adequate time to collect their Race Pack, warm up and get into their start wave in time. 

Below are the official start waves for the 1km, 2km & 5km Cole Classic swims. Wave times will be released closer to the event, please note the wave order and times are subject to change and may be updated pending weather conditions on Race Day.
