For safety reasons and due to the limited resources of this volunteer undertaking, the number of swimmers is limited. This form is an Expression of interest only and does not guarantee entry into the event. Our team will evaluate your application and contact you directly to discuss your entry.
Before putting yourself forward, please consider the following:
This event is difficult and should be attempted by experienced and confident swimmers only. As a solo swimmer (20km) you should have completed at least a 10km open water swim in the last 12 months before entering this event.
This event is free to enter and run solely by volunteers. For that, we ask that each swimmer or team raise a minimum of $500 per individual or $1000 per team by engaging their networks through social media, email and any other means necessary. If you are not confident that you can reach this target, please consider making an equivalent donation to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter via the Everydayhero Platform
Any entrants acknowledge and accept all risks associated with participating in a long-distance open water swim and adhere to the event’s safety plan (a formal acknowledgement form will be provided in due course). Individual swimmers are ultimately responsible for their own safety.
This form is a registration of interest only. Registering your interest does not guarantee entry into the event. Our team will evaluate your application and contact you directly to discuss your entry.
