Steeped in over 40 years of tradition, Surf Life Saving Australia’s pinnacle event, the Nutri-Grain IronMan and IronWoman Series is returning to the ultimate stage for major surf sporting events – the Gold Coast.

This summer, Surf Life Saving Australia is once again delivering the 2023/24 Nutri-Grain Series which will bring athletes and audiences from all around Australia for six rounds of action-packed racing, culminating on the Gold Coast. The Nutri-Grain Series is deemed the most competitive form of Iron racing and features 42 of the fittest and fastest surf sports athletes in the country pushed to their limits in courses that test endurance, speed and skill in the ocean.

From 3-4 February 2024, rounds five and six will be held at Kurrawa Beach, a well-known competition arena in the Surf Life Saving world which sits on the 57kms of pristine coastline with world-class surf conditions.

The Kurrawa event will also host the Nutri-Grain Next Gen Series, a curtain raiser to the Iron Series. Next Gen is open to Under 19 males and females with the top competitor after the three rounds gaining automatic qualification into the 2024/2025 Iron Series.

ROUND 5: The Specialist is four separate four to five-minute races, one for each discipline of swim, board, ski and run. At the conclusion of the four separate races, the final IronMan/IronWoman race will be conducted with a staggered start commencing from the finish arch. The athlete ranked 1st after the four Specialist races will start on ‘GO’ with the remaining athletes then undertaking a handicap start in sequential order in accordance to their ranking.

ROUND 6: The Survival is three separate, 12-minute long Iron races starting with 20 competitors, with the last six finishers in each race eliminated until eight are left in the final race. There is a thrilling 3-minute countdown between each race.
