GMHBA Lorne Pier to Pub

Running for over 34 years, and run by volunteers from the Lorne Surf Life Saving Club, the prestigious GMHBA Lorne Pier to Pub is the largest open water swim in the world.

Tips for participants:

  • 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.
  • Ensure you take your time at the start of the race to get your bearings.
  • Be aware that it can get busy at the start of each wave, watch out for other competitors as you dive under.
  • And if you need help at any stage of the race, put your hand up and someone will come and get you, the amazing team at Lorne SLSC are there to help.
