The Chieftain Challenge Run Swim Run on Sunday, 15 December 2019 combines beach running and swimming in a race from Mona Vale Basin to Warriewood Beach in Sydney, NSW.
The event can be completed by individuals or broken up into legs for up to four competitors. The total swim distance is 1.9km broken into four legs, interspersed with three runs totalling 1.5km and ending with a 50m sprint up the beach to the line.
The Chieftain Challenge is different from most other swim run events, in that all the runs are along the sand of one long beach, so you don’t need running shoes.
