Coolangatta Gold Surf Lifesaving Ironman Event, 2022 Dates & Times

The race originally started when it was created as part of a 1980’s film about surf lifesaving. It was so popular that the organisers decided to create a real event with a $20,000 prize for those competing.

The race consists of four challenging legs: a 23km Ski, 9.2km run (broken up between 2.1km and 7.1km legs), 3.5km swim and a 6.1km board. The race typically starts at Kurrawa Beach and then heads up to Northcliffe Surf Club and back down to the Kurrawa. There is also now a short course option with a 10.5km Ski, 2.5km swim, 3km board and a 5.5km run.

Competitors do not need to be a member of a particular club to compete but must be over 16 years of age to compete in individual events. Team entries are also permitted with 2-4 competitors which can consist of female, male or mixed teams.

For spectators, get down to the beach early, as the race starts in the water at 7:30am.

For younger competitors aged between 11-16yrs, there is also a youth challenge which consists of a 1.8km of a sand run and optional board leg.

So come on down and show your support for the athletes in this challenging endurance race and enjoy the beautiful beachside scenery along the Gold Coast.
