Central Leader - - SPORT -

Mis­sion Bay is get­ting set to re­sume the Stroke and Stride Se­ries on Jan­uary 20. One of the coun­try’s most popular swim-run se­ries, the event has reached its 26th sea­son. With three rounds of eight al­ready com­pleted, round four will mark the first of 2015. The com­pe­ti­tion in­volves a 1km sea swim fol­lowed by a 3km road run on the water­front, al­low­ing par­tic­i­pants to take in the views of the city’s mag­nif­i­cent har­bour and beaches. All en­trants go in the draw to win the moun­tain of prizes in­clud­ing $10,000 for the fastest com­peti­tors. Round five will take place on Fe­bru­ary 3. Visit swim­run.org for en­try de­tails.
