An ocean swim hugging the Oriental Bay Beaches, with some of the best spectator vantage points around the Harbour, the State Capital Classic is the third of six events in the State New Zealand Ocean Swim Series.
Consisting of four different swim events, the State Capital Classic provides an ocean swim event for all ages and abilities:
‘I’m Going Long’ - a 3.3km swim from Frank Kitts Park, around the iconic Pt Jerningham Lighthouse to Freyberg Beach in Oriental Bay.
‘Step It Up’ - a 1000m swim starting at Oriental Bay Beach and finishing at Freyberg Beach, an achievable distance for individuals with swimming experience.
‘Give It A Go’ – a 300m swim starting at Oriental Bay Beach and finishing at Freyberg Beach, a great introduction to open water swimming.
'State OceanKids' - a swim for children aged between 6-10 years old, consisting of a fun 30min safety activity session followed by a 200m shallow water swim from Oriental Bay Beach to Freyberg Beach, lined with Surf Life Saving NZ guards.
