BRAC Events

Broome Recreation and Aquatic Centre hosts three major events annually, the Beach 2 Bay Virtual Swim, Dash & Splash Series and the BRAC 2 Beach Fun Run.

Beach 2 Bay Virtual Swim

Have you ever wondered how far it would be to swim from Broome’s beautiful Cable Beach, around Gantheaume Point, to Town Beach in Roebuck Bay?

Well, the answer is 20km, and that’s the distance of the Beach 2 Bay Virtual Swim.

The event is held entirely in the BRAC swimming pool and is designed to replicate the distance to swim from Cable Beach to Roebuck Bay.

 For anyone wanting to get some training in beforehand, BRAC offers an Adult Swim Program on Tuesday evenings 6pm to 7pm and Thursday mornings 5.45am to 7am with a coach to offer training and stroke correction

 Dash & Splash

 Dash & Splash is a duathlon run swim event. Competitors can choose to take part in a short course or long course event. The short course is a 2km run with a 200m swim, while the long course is a 4km run with 400m swim. Take part in the series and see if you can beat everyone or do one event just to give it a go!

 The short course and long course events can be completed as an individual, or adult competitors can tackle the long course as a duo. Juniors have the option to tackle the short course as a duo or compete against the adults in the long course as a duo. BRAC is excited to introduce a new category, Parent-Child Short Course Teams!
