This event is proudly hosted by the Ballarat Triathlon Club and will cater for all entrants who have an interest and desire to swim the magnificent 1956 Olympic Rowing Course. From the big guns that will swim it in under 20 minutes, to everyday swimmers that just enjoy a challenge, this is the event for you so come on down to Ballarat and dip your toes in the water and “Swim to the Rings”.
There are two swim event options, the first being our marquee "Swim to the Rings” event, a 2000 m straight-line swim down the entire length of the 1956 Olympic Rowing Course. It will be a truly unique experience not to be missed and then there's the “Splash & Dash” event, a 500 m swim to cater for those not up to taking on the full course but want to participate in an event on the day. This will be a “U” shaped swim with the start/finish in the same precinct as the end of the “Swim to the Rings” event.
Event start times are yet to be confirmed, however will be approximately 10.00 am for the 2000 m event and noon for the 500 m event. We'll keep you updated once confirmed.
Orca wetsuits will be available for rent on race day at a cost of $50.
