Tathra Wharf to Waves has been held each year since 2002. Thank you to Bega Cheese and On the Perch who were once again our major sponsors for the 2016 event, to John Maher from www.scnswbiz, who manages our website, and also to our many listed sponsors, supporters and volunteers. We could not run the event without you.
The 2016 Weekend saw 180 competitors in the Beach Fun Run, over 120 bike riders hit the track, and around 300 swimmers plunge into the water. We had amazing conditions and the water was indeed crystal clear, surprisingly, after the rain that fell the two weeks leading up to the events.
Thank you to everyone who came, helped, swam, cycled, ran and made the weekend the success it was.
It was great to see so many young families running the beach this year. Our riders, as usual, went out hard and all came back unscathed! By all reports a great Saturday, enjoyed by all who competed and those who were there to cheer them on.
The swimmers gave it their all on Sunday with the following swimmers picking up the fastest times.
Fastest 1200m Male Swimmer was, for the third year in a row, James Macri in 14.16.
Fastest 1200m Female Swimmer was Zoe Phillipzen in 16.55
Fastest 600m Male Swimmer was Shayne Rettke in 6.54
Fastest 600m Female Swimmer was Zoe Phillipzen in 7.06
Over the past fifteen years the event has grown and is now a premier event on the Far South Coast calendar every January.
