The Point Leo Swim Classic is a 1,200-metre open water swim that has been held for over 25 years.

Usually held on Boxing Day each year, it’s a community event that takes the form of a swimming/running ‘festival’ incorporating a number of other support events, attracting swimmers and runners of different ages and abilities.

There will be the opportunity to register for multiple events:

  • 2km Point Leo Swim Classic
  • 5 km Swim challenge
  • 400m Nipper & Novice Swims
  • 4km Honeysuckle run

What’s happening in 2020?

In 2020, due to currently known Government and Life Saving Victoria COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to plan to hold a physical public event at Point Leo beach on Boxing Day, as per previous years.

We are really disappointed that our beautiful beach will not be filled with our keen Point Leo Swim Classic swimmers and runners this year and we will miss your enthusiasm, energy and the way you all light up our event!

However, we still want people: to keep fit, keep up their swimming and keep having fun so, instead, for the first time we are organising a Point Leo ‘Virtual’ Swim Classic.

Wherever you live, you can still be involved in the Point Leo ‘Virtual’ Swim Classic!

It’s all about getting involved this year, despite being apart, and making the most of your local environment whilst participating in our great event – virtually!

We look forward to you participating in another one of Point Leo SLSC’s wonderful community events this season.

Here are the details, so keep checking the website for more details as they become available.:

  • Online entries open on 4th December 2020 via the Point Leo website ONLY
  • Registered swims to be completed from 26th December closing 4th January 2021.
  • Limited edition 2020 Point Leo ‘Virtual’ Swim Classic T-shirts can only be ordered at the time of entry.
