Harcourts Cooper & Co Swim the Shore

Date: December 12th, 2020 - December 12th, 2020

The curvaceous coastline of Auckland’s North Shore boasts Pohutukawa-fringed cliffs and excellent swimming conditions, and is home to our first swim of the Series.  Previously known as the ‘King of the Bays’, the introduction of our brand new swim courses was the perfect chance to rename this much-loved event as the Harcourts Cooper & Co Swim the Shore.

From the Ironman distance 3.8km Narrow Neck to Takapuna swim along the coastline, to swims along  the length of Takapuna beach (perfect for your support crew to follow you!), imagine yourself crossing the finish line with the dramatic backdrop of Rangitoto behind you, and the Harcourts Cooper & Co team putting your finisher’s medal around your neck…

Why not make a day of it with your mates and family and celebrate your finish line moment at Takapuna’s vibrant cafe and bar scene!

Swims on offer:

Narrow Neck to Takapuna Beach – 3.8km
The Full Taka – 1000m
The Half Taka – 500m
Banana Boat OceanKids – 100m and 200m (7-10 years)
