It’s never easy to decide on a weekend plan that will be fun for all involved, healthy and score you a great Insta, plus an epic story to tell come Monday morning.
A trip to the coast is always a good idea, but more often than not you aren’t really seeing the coast. No, there’s only so much of the coast you can experience from your car or drenched in tanning oil with a magazine over your face. Hence why we’re stoked for the Cooly Classic this April 3rd. It ticks all our weekend requirements, and means we’ll have a view of the coast not often seen.
Ocean swimming is totally the new fun run (link to prior article). The Cooly Classic is the perfect way to see the coast while you’re burning those calories from a year that’s consisted, so far, of failed resolutions. The swim covers three of Australia’s most iconic surf spots from a unique view point – Snapper Rocks, Coolangatta and Kirra, which look a whole lot better from the water, trust us!
With options to suit even the newest of new comers to ocean swimming, or those chasing the ultimate challenge, your epic day at the coast is sorted with the Cooly Classic. In 3, 2 and 1 kilometre installments it’s easy to find your perfect match. Plus, if swimming ain’t yo’ thang check out the Stretch Yoga on offer pre swim with Erin Bourne. Make sure you snap up your entry quick smart. While you’re at it, why not book some accommodation to make a mini-vacay out of it #RoadTrip.
For the famished athlete, and those who are fonder of the spectator variety of sports, the Cooly Classic is the perfect backdrop for a day of culinary delights. Start your day off with GC brekky done right, a pub lunch to treat yo’ self, and then finish the day off with one of the GC’s best margaritas. Go on, you earned it.
