Iconic summer hot-spot, Mt Maunganui, hosts the Generation Homes Sand to Surf once again so make a plan to swim at our most diverse one-day event!

Events on offer at Generation Homes Sand to Surf:

-Banana Boat OceanKids 100m (7&8yrs), 200m (9&10yrs) & 400m (11&12yrs)
-500m at Main Beach (8yrs +)

-2.6km around both islands (12yrs +)
-Amphibian Swim-Run (12yrs +)

The 2.6km swim around the seaward side of both Rabbit and Leisure Islands has been a series favourite for a number of years. This point to point course takes you around Mount Maunganui’s two iconic islands before finishing on Main Beach in front of your family and friends.

The Amphibian returns after it’s phenomenal debut, to join the line-up of short and long swim distances and Banana Boat OceanKids swims. Take on a quick 500m swim at Main Beach before donning your running shoes and heading off for a picturesque 4.5km run around the Mount Base Track.

Event day also features loads of opportunities for supporters and spectators to make the most of the shoreline action with family-friendly activities and a chilled beach vibe.
