The State Beach Series is an 18 event summer sports series taking place on Takapuna Beach on Tuesday evenings. The Series is a fun, relaxed and social event to keep fit, train for a bigger event or just enjoy a summer’s evening at the beach with your family.

Swimming is one of our most popular event disciplines at the State Beach Series and therefore, this summer, we are once again offering a choice of four different distances, to ensure there is something for everyone!

Swim 1000m & 1500m
The Swim 1000m & 1500m are great ocean swims for participants of all ages, with some good ocean swimming experience under their belts – it’s a fun, but not too intimidating challenge! They are a great stepping stone to the bigger ocean swim events like the State New Zealand Ocean Swim Series. All entrants receive their personal time which is displayed on the results page and will be given points which will go towards the Series Competition, so long as you participate in 12 or more events.

Swim 500m
The Swim 500m is perfect for those who love the beach and swimming but just want to get out there and enjoy the event. The swim course is closer into shore and has more of a social element than the 1000m and 1500m distances. All entrants receive their personal time which is displayed on the results page and will be given points which will go towards the Series Competition, so long as you participate in 12 or more events.

Junior Swim 250m
The Junior Swim 250m is a fantastic distance for the budding swimmer amongst us – the kids. The swim course is close into shore, well supported by surf lifeguards and a great taste of what ocean swimming is all about! It’s a great swim to do with your friends, brothers & sisters or you could even take mum or dad along for free for support and encouragement. The swim will be timed and points will be allocated which can accrue towards the Age Group Series Competition, if you swim in 12 or more events. After a successful first year, the Primary Schools Competition will once again see primary schools competing against one another across the summer. Please visit our website above for more details.

The State Beach Series also offers Run (Junior 2500m and 5000m) and Stand Up Paddle Board (3000m) events each week.
