Generation Homes Sand to Surf – 9 February 2019

Legendary summer hot-spot Mt Maunganui is bursting with a myriad of ways to make the most of the great outdoors, so we’re kicking things up a BIG notch this season – get amongst it!

Generation Homes Sand to Surf – 9 February 2019

From white sand beaches as far as the eye can see, to tree lined parks and gentle rolling surf, Mt Maunganui captures the essence of a good old Kiwi summer, in one of the country’s most popular holiday spots.

It’s no surprise that people flock from all over the country to the annual Generation Homes Sand to Surf event and things are about to get even more awesome (if that’s even possible!) with not just new swim courses, but with an entirely new event – The Amphibian!

Looking for a short ‘n snappy aquatic activity? Check out the 500m swim or extend yourself with the brand new 1.25km lap around Moturiki (Leisure) Island! Need something a bit longer to get your salt water swim fix? The 2.6km swim has got you sorted as you head out beyond Moturiki (Leisure) Island, around Motuotau (Rabbit) Island and back to the beach for your finish line victory air-punch.

Drum roll please…..introducing…..The Amphibian! We heard you were keen for a new challenge so here you go. Head into the surf for a 500m swim then tag your mate (or keep going yourself) on a 4.5km run around the base of Mt Maunganui before finishing strong back on the beach.

Three distances in the Banana Boat OceanKids Series means that young swimmers can have the swim of their life at six of our annual events! The 100m swim is perfect for those starting out or finding their flippers in the ocean aged 7 and 8 years old, and the 200m distance is ideal for 9 and 10 year olds. If your 11 and 12 year old tadpole is looking for a bit more of a challenge have a go at the 300m distance.
