Bondi Annual Lifeguard Challenge Relay
Annual Lifeguard Challenge Relay is all set for BONDI NSW Saturday 11 February 2017
For over 30 years Council Lifeguard Services have been coming together on Bondi beach on the second Wednesday in February to compete in the Annual Lifeguard Challenge Relay. The event has been keenly contested over the years and the logistics of mid-week travel to Bondi on Wednesday afternoons to compete in the twilight event from 7pm has given way to the more practical Saturday afternoon timeslot.
Thanks for the registration of teams already – no need for registration of lead-up individual events.
Zoggs swimwear is the Lifeguard Challenge Relay event sponsor whereby each Lifeguard Challenge Relay member receives a pair of Preadator swim goggles, cap and costumes for participating in the Lifeguard Challenge Relay event.
Resident Lifeguard Coordinator Bruce ‘Hoppo’ Hopkins has secured a Saturday afternoon beach booking at Bondi on Saturday 11 February 2017 and both Hoppo and Ken Holloway have been successful in securing Zoggs swimwear as the Lifeguard Challenge Relay event sponsor by way of each Lifeguard Challenge Relay member receiving a pair of Preadator swim goggles, cap and costumes for the event.
The Saturday afternoon will also incorporate individual events commencing 5pm prior to the Lifeguard Challenge Relay that will commence at 6pm.
Registration for all events will be from 4pm and Lifeguard Service Teams must register on the beach to receive their Zoggs swim goggles, cap and costumes.
Once again the Lifeguard Challenge Relay will comprise 2 x Beach Runners, 2 x Swimmers, 2 x Surfo Board paddlers and 2 x Rescue Board paddlers.
The individual lead-up races available for current lifeguards will commence at 5pm will include:
Open surf race
