Race Report 201102-Jan-2012
To all those people who entered into the 2011 Banana Boat Bondi to Bronte & Junior Ocean Swim, we at Bronte Surf Club would like to say thank you for your support of our event, we truly hope you enjoyed the day.
This year we had 1950 entrants who braved the Pacific to take a journey swim around one of Sydney's most popular coast line areas.
Thankfully we were blessed with conditions that allowed us to run the event (even though there was a howling southerly) and for all the water safety who were there to help you, we say another big thank you. Without our volunteers and water safety, this event wouldn't be the success it has become over the years.
A few more special thanks must go out to our event major sponsor Banana Boat, plus all the supporting partners, The Sunday Telegraph, Speedo, Fitness First Gatorade and Kellogg's.
A big thank you comes from the team at The Kids Cancer Project, our event and the fundraisers involved managed to raise a total of $28,600 to date. You still have two weeks left before we close the fund raising for the Banana Boat Bondi to Bronte so make sure you chase up those people who can possibly help you win one of the great signed prizes from the Australian Speedo Swim Team.
So once again, thank you for your support at our event and we look forward to seeing you back next year. We hope that the rest of your summer ocean swimming season is successful and if you're interested in a couple of other great events, we recommend the Sunday Telegraph Ocean Swim Series events.
