North Cott Splash 'n' Dash 2018



Well, we couldn't have asked for more! After a close weather call the 2018 North Cott Splash n Dash went off without a hitch. Squeezed onto the limited beach left by cyclone Marcus, the smaller space just added to the vibe. Participants young and old came from far and wide to embrace WA's newest family beach aquathlon. Congratulations to long course winners Rahul Jegatheva (men), Jaime Bowler (women) and Ceinwen and Andy Roberts (relay). And congratulations to everyone who entered because 'having a go' is what we are all about. 

Of course none of this would have been possible without Platinum Sponsor Humphrey Homes, Gold Sponsors GPs on Bayview and Shellabears, Silver Sponsors Multiplex and a long list of others including Cottesloe Council, North Cott Surf Life Saving Club, Triathlon WA and our Charity Partner Melanoma WA. Then of course there was our huge band of community volunteers who registered, herded, marshalled and encouraged participants, held ropes against the swell,  MC'd, DJ'd, Zumba'd, set up, packed up, baked, fried and served! 

So with one final thanks to everyone, the Splash n Dash Team is truly chuffed with the community spirit displayed and can't wait to make it happen all over again in 2019



Community Event

This event is for recreational swimmers looking to have some sporty fun and for the more serious swimmers looking for a timed open water event. 

Kids don't miss out either with a short and medium distance course. Those who are first timers can have a parent swim/wade with them in the short course.  As long as you are 6 years old in 2018, you can splash 'n' dash with us.


Every child who crosses the finish line receive a finishers medal and all competitors get an entry in the random prize draw for a chance to win fabulous prizes at the presentation ceremony.

Prizes will be awarded to the first male and female across the line in the long event.    

See Event Info for all the details.

The short and medium events are untimed but for the more competitive, cash prizes are up for grabs for the first male and female across the line in the long race. All finishers in the short and medium event receive a finisher medal and all competitors go in the draw to win some fabulous prizes.
