The Kids Dash is back in 2019 and we can't wait to see the children getting involved. It is the perfect introduction to ocean swimming for your child and we encourage all the Anglesea Nippers to give it go with their friends.
The Kids Dash is designed for 7 to 12 year olds over a 200m-300m course at Point Roadknight Beach in Anglesea and forms part of the 2019 Burson Auto Rock2Ramp event.
Older children may choose to participate in the new 600m swim but should note this swim is open to adults as well.
Marshalling will occur just to the side of the start line. Please ensure that you are near the start line at least 15 minutes prior to your race start time. Please assist race officials by wearing your swim cap in the marshalling area and listening to instructions.
At the direction of the Race officials, you will then be marshalled on the start line.
Carefully read the map of the course. You must pass to the left of all yellow buoys, and between two final red buoys to the finish line.
As soon as you have crossed under the finish line structure, ensure that the judges can see your official race number. Then proceed quickly up the beach to the right to clear the way for other finishers.
Anglesea SLSC provides the highest level of water safety per capita of all the swims in the area. Water Safety consists of Inflatable Rescue Boats and Rescue Boards, all manned by competent Surf Lifesavers together with a Medical Centre on land. If you feel you cannot go on, wave your hand over your head and you will be assisted immediately.
