‘Last year the competitors ranged from 12-years-old to over 80, so it really is an event for everyone,’ race director Beth Williams said,

The Swanbourne-Nedlands Surf Life Saving Club-organised annual race for swimmers, paddlers and runners is in its 29th year and is expected to attract up to 500 competitors.

The swim, 2.2km stand-up paddle race and 2km beach run is part of Surf Life Saving WA’s Ocean Swim series and raises funds for the club.

Racers will include those training for the upcoming Rottnest Channel Swim. Racing starts at Cottesloe Beach at 7.45am. Visit www.swannysurfclub. org.au.
