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.

Visit Race HQ/Race Pack Collection at Manly Promenade on the day for any assistance. Once you have collected your Race Pack, head over to the Start Line at Shelly Beach, where there is an information desk if you have any further questions. Please note you cannot collect your Race Pack from the information desk at the Start Line at Shelly Beach; Race Pack Collection is located at Manly Promenade.

Below are the official Start Waves for the 1km, 2km & 5km Cole Classic swims.
