Great East Swim offers two new distances - giving even more people the chance to get involved

The Great East Swim is launching two new distances when it returns this summer, giving even more people the chance to take on the challenge.

The new Great East Swim250 and Great East SwimRun aim to widen the scope of events day on Saturday June 17 so it is inclusive to an even broader range of ages and abilities.

The Great SwimRun is an outdoor running and swimming challenge and involves teams of two people taking on a gruelling journey around Alton Water, both on land and in the water.

First Tasmanian to swim English Channel celebrates 10th Anniversary with 10k swim in Scots Loch

Swimming 10k is nothing for elite swimmer Anne Steele. She spent her last holiday swimming from island to island in the Maldives where the water is 29 degrees and clear. In Loch Earn in the highlands of Scotland the water is a pitch-black 13 degrees. Anne's main problem is finding water in Tasmania that is cold enough. Listen as she outlines her training plan (including lying in ice baths) and shares the connection this swim has with her late Father.

Auckland Marathon Swim, a Challenging Finale in New Zealand

The GSS season is wrapping up. This weekend was the last race of the season in New Zealand and the 2nd last of the whole series. There were some crucial points up for grabs and more to be won next weekend at the Pacific Championships in Australia. The Auckland Marathon Swim was a great finale for an exciting year of swimming in New Zealand, giving swimmers a challenging 10km to compete in. The weather in Auckland during the week before the Marathon swim saw a cyclone come through and significant rains and flooding. Fortunately again the weather gods played their part and the day saw a gentle 10-15 knot North-westerly causing more issues for the kayaker than the swimmers.

Cape Town Swimmers dominate local open water swim

Sunday’s Eastern Cape Swim Series at Marina Martinique saw what is possibly the faster 10km time in this history of the Series when Cape Town swimmer Danie Marais touched at the end of the 10km marathon race in a time of 1hr 53min and 51secs.

Marais, a national swimmer, was followed home by fellow Western Province swimmers Dylan Wright (2:05.49) and Andrew Ritchie (2:06:02). Securing the clean sweep in the 10km swim for the Cape Town clubs were their ladies with Rebecca Meder (2:06:04) winning the ladies race from older sister Abigail Meder (2:10:09) and Carli Antonopoulos (2:11:03).

Skaha Lake Ultra Swim returns

The Skaha Lake Ultra Swim has been resuscitated.

The event returns Aug. 13 for the 20th running of the race that was held from 1985 to 2004 with the exception of 1999.

Steve Brown, one of the local organizers, said having the Skaha Lake Ultra Swim return and to be able to celebrate the anniversary is special.

“It was just kind of the synergy of bringing it back,” said Brown, the race director for the Three Lakes Triathlon series. “We want to play that up.”
