18th August 2019
The 10km is fast becoming an iconic swim distance. New for 2018 we offer you the chance to take on this marathon challenge. We’ll provide the route and everything else you need, the rest is down to you!
Swimming 1000m and then making an ‘Aussie exit’ you decide how to approach the challenge. Will you take it easy and enjoy a brief rest from swimming whilst enjoying the spectator support? Or, will you run straight through and plunge into the water for your next lap?
Will you enter as an individual, a pair or a team?. Teams, you decide your swimming order, all we ask is that you complete the 10km swopping over swimmers on the short run between laps.
Whether you’re looking to complete an individual 10km or want the fun and enjoyment of competing as a team this is the challenge for you. First time marathon swimmers can enjoy a brief break from swimming every 1000m with the opportunity to refuel whilst seasoned swimmers and triathletes can enjoy the opportunity to practice their ‘Aussie Exit’s (exiting the water at the end of each lap by running up the beach, around a small loop and then running back in again).

-Individuals (minimum age 18)* £50
-Teams of 2 (minimum age 16)* £60
-Teams of up to 5 (minimum age 15)* £75
