COLE CLASSIC 2023
This weekend brings our final big event for this season – the Cole Classic. To date, we have over 4000 entrants across the 5km, 2km and 1 km events, so this will be the biggest Cole Classic ever.
The event is the Club’s primary fundraiser and we couldn’t put on a race of this quality and size without the volunteering and support of our Members.
A very special thank you to the Cole Classic organising committee led by our Director of Events, John Thomson. They have worked incredibly hard over the past year to make the event bigger and better than ever.
We have landed some incredible sponsors for the event – so please show them your support: Okanui, Hamilton Island, Altis Property Partners, Speedo Starlight Super Swim, Wharf Bar, Cadigal office leasing and Cryo Northern Beaches.
Thank you to all members who have volunteered their time to make this happen. The Cole Classic is our big fundraiser for the club, as well as supporting multiple charities as well.
There will be a celebration back at the Club on Sunday afternoon – post the Cole Classic pack down, to thank our volunteers and sponsors for their efforts.

CLUB REBUILD – $4M Election Commitment
In December 2022 the NSW Government provided $1M dollars towards the redevelopment of Manly Life Saving Club. On Wednesday, after further discussions with the Liberal state government and James Griffin MP, the Club has today received a written election commitment of $4M. This means is the Liberal government is re-elected we will receive an additional $4m towards the Club re-build.
