Manly Inflatable Boat Race 2020

Unleash your inner kidult for charity (and ultimate glory).

Grab your most colourful beach floatie and your most surf-friendly out-there fancy dress — the 15th annual Manly Inflatable Boat Race returns to delight kidults on Sunday, February 23.

The charity event will see participants take their makeshift boats and paddles through a one-kilometre course, starting off at Shelly Beach and ending back at shore. You must be at least 12 years old to participate and, of course, be able to swim. Following the race, there'll be a sausage sizzle while token prizes are awarded.

The day isn't just for laughs, though, with all proceeds going to Tour de Cure, an Aussie-based fundraiser that benefits cancer research. Even the booking fee will be donated thanks to Humanitix, Australia's first not-for-profit ticketing platform.

Early bird tickets have already sold out, but you can still nab $55 tickets online, or pay $60 on the day. The race starts at Shelley Beach at 10.30am — but you'll need to leave enough time to check in and inflate your vessel on South Steyne Promenade (just opposite Royal Far West) beforehand.

Here's a chance to enjoy yourself silly while doing some good. May the best floatie win.
