Community Event

This event is for recreational swimmers looking to have some sporty fun and for the more serious swimmers looking for a timed open water event. 

Kids don't miss out either with a short and medium distance course. Those who are first timers can have a parent swim/wade with them in the short course.  As long as you are 6 years old in 2017, you can splash 'n' dash with us.


Every child who crosses the finish line receive a finishers medal and all competitors get an entry in the random prize draw for a chance to win fabulous prizes at the presentation ceremony.

Prizes will be awarded to the first male and female across the line in the long event.    

See Event Info for all the details.
