Your weekly Tuesday night swim! – Tuesday 7 November 2023 - Tuesday 2 April 2024

The stunning waters of Milford Beach play host to the HUGE number of swimmers that take part in the Harcourts Cooper & Co Beach Series SWIM event!

Crystal clear, toasty warm, and catering to elite and casual alike – this weekly swim is for you if you are training for a bigger event like the Banana Boat Ocean Swim Series or our People’s Triathlon Series, or…you are looking to keep fit and active over Summer! We welcome ALL to the Beach Series.

Ocean swimming is both challenging and exciting – you’ll love it! When making the switch from indoor to open water swimming, it’s a good idea to start with a shorter distance and work your way up as your confidence grows. Download our Free How-To Ocean Swim Guide for more tips and tricks or just ask one of the many top notch swimmers there on the night.

Safety First! As the largest weekly Auckland ocean swim event, you can take comfort in knowing you will not be swimming alone. All our events are guarded by professional lifeguards and one way they manage your safety is requiring all participants to wear correctly coloured swim caps. Your first swim cap is free with your series pass, however, if you change event distances you can purchase a new swim cap from registration; these are $10.

Distances on offer:

We have swim distances that cater from the competitive, right down to the first-timer. 16 weeks of racing will see your fitness and confidence soar. Will you step up to a longer distance mid-season?
