The Mentone Open Water Marathon in Victoria on Saturday, 9 March 2019 is a 5km & 10km ocean swim.
Located in the sheltered Beaurmaris Bay, under the watchful eye of Mentone Life Saving Club, this is a fantastic event for experienced open water swimmers wanting to test themselves with a marathon distance.
The course is made up of a 2.5km circuit. All individual swimmers must swim through a feeding station channel on each 2.5km leg. The location allows for support crew to wade into a designated sand bank area to provide food and drink to participant. No support kayaks, skis or water craft will be required or allowed.
