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 2018, 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.


Events for All

Entry includes official registration, swim cap, timing for the long event, refreshments, activities, entry in the random prize draw, and sponsor offers. The short and medium events are untimed but for the more competitive, cash prizes are up for grabs for the first male and female across the line in the long race. All finishers in the short and medium event receive a finisher medal and all competitors go in the draw to win some fabulous prizes. 

Subject to numbers, event day entries may be accepted, but a late registration fee will apply.
