Portsea Swim Classic
WHY CHOOSE THIS SWIM?
The Portsea Swim Classic is a superb event that takes place along the coastline of the Port Nepean National Park. It offers a unique ocean swimming opportunity and is a truly beautiful swim. It is organised by Portsea SLSC.
Attracting 2000 swimmers each year, it is not difficult to see why this event is one of the most popular on the calendar.
Swimmers register in the Port Nepean National Park at the Jarman Oval, which is also the finish line. A shuttle bus service takes swimmers back to the start line.
Entries are limited to ensure smooth running by the organisers do there’s no time to waste with getting your entries in. This really is an event that you do not want to miss out on.
