Seacliff SPR 2014 - Event Results and Wrap Up


Seacliff SPR 2014-Results

Firstly, thanks to all those who competed in this year’s inaugural Seacliff SPR, with just over 200 registrations, the level of support for our first event was phenomenal and really made the event!

Updated: Apologies for the late notice but after a degree of post event "take a breath", the organising committee has met and discussed the photo competition. At this point we would like to say thank-you to all entrants in the photo competition, there are some awesome images. However the number of entries across the categories meant that voting and judging this small number would have been less than completely fair and meaningful. We would therefore respectfully ask all entrants to leave their photo's up and consider them in next years event. Next year we hope to promote the photo competition as widely as possible to increase the level of participation, then follow up with an exhibition and judging in conjunction with the SPR sporting event. So again thanks to all entrants in the SPR photo competition, if you wish to remove your photo from the web page and/or not leave your photo up for next year then please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

The organising committee would like to thank all our sponsors and event partners:

  • Nine News, City of Holdfast Bay Council, Plan b Fitness, Titan Performance Group
  • WebsiteToGo, Paddle Sport SA, Hayden Surfcraft, CSR, Flight Centre
  • Zonte’s Footstep Wines, Surf Life Saving SA, People’s Choice Credit Union
  • Bing Boy, Naturalus

An event like the Seacliff SPR doesn’t happen without an army of volunteers, so thanks to all those who volunteered their time for event setup, registrations, catering, marshalling, timing, refereeing, water cover, first aid and merchandise sales.

A quick note on results: with 100 competitors in the junior and senior SPR events accurate timing was difficult, particularly for the juniors where the shorter course length meant a lot of competitors were bunched together when crossing the line. It was not possible to get accurate times but final placing were as correct as possible. For the senior race the iPad based timing system froze and meant pen/paper and stopwatch back-up’s were required, this was particularly an issue when some competitors were still finishing the paddle leg whilst leading competitors were finishing the run leg, again the final times and places were correct.
