GMHBA Lorne Pier to Pub and Mountain to Surf

GMHBA are proud to be back as the major event partner for the 2015 GMHBA Pier to Pub and Mountain to Surf events.

The event is going to be bigger than ever - as is our support of the Lorne Surf Life Saving Club.

About the GMHBA Lorne Pier to Pub

The GMHBA Lorne Pier to Pub is the largest open water swim in the world and is organised by volunteers from the Lorne Surf Life Saving Club. The event is one of the most prestigious open water swims with over 34 years of history.

If you're swimming for the first time, make sure you practice in the pool and do a couple of open water swims so you know what to expect.

During the swim there are a couple of things you should be aware of:

  • It can get busy at the start of each wave which can result in you being obstructed by other competitors.
  • Ensure you take your time at the start of the race to get your bearings.
  • And if you need help at any stage of the race, put your hand up and someone will come and get you.

When: Saturday 10th January 2015

Where: Lorne Surf Life Saving Club, Lorne Victoria.

About the GMHBA Lorne Mountain to Surf

The GMHBA Lorne Mountain to Surf is an 8km run starting in Lorne. It takes participants through the forest and along the Great Ocean Road finishing at the Lorne Surf Live Saving Club.

The event caters for a wide variety of fitness levels and abilities.

When: Friday 9th January 2015
