Dive in with 5,000 other swimmers in the world's largest organised swim. Each year thousands of swimmers dive into a sea of history and race the 1.2 kilometre course of the Lorne Pier to Pub. The Lorne Pier to Pub started as an informal challenge among Lorne Surf Life Saving Club members. It's now an action-packed weekend attracting people from near and far to both participate in the race and soak up the carnival atmosphere. Over the past 33 years the event has grown in size and stature and now claims centre stage of a two day program that includes the Mountain to Surf Fun Run and Surf Boat Race Classic.Since 3071 swimmers took to the water in 1998, the swim has been entered into the Guinness Book of Records as the world's largest open water swim.
