Choosing the best entry pass

You choose how many times to participate within a season – the more events you enter at a time, the cheaper the price per event. You will also receive some additional goodies for buying a 12 or 18 event pass.

All entries are once again flexible this season. This means you’re able to enter the 1500m ocean swim event and have this as your default, however if one evening you decide to give something else a go, no problem, just let the team in registration know you are changing for that night.

You will always be entered into your default category so it is important if you change that you let us know. If a swimmer changes to a run or SUP then you must purchase a singlet from registration to be able to take part; these are $15.00. If a runner or SUP’er changes to the ocean swim you must purchase a swim cap from registration to be able to take part; these are $10.00.
