URM LITTLE BIG SWIM COMMENCES 0830,

REGISTRATION TENT OPEN AT 0730

 

 

THE URM LITTLE BIG SWIM is up to 1km with a limit of 400 swimmers to ensure comfortable swimming space and safety. The start will be in four waves in designated age groups. The course is a beach start, through the shore break, around coloured buoys and back to the beach.

All should be able to complete the course within 45 minutes. Swimmers will each have an electronic ankle band so times are recorded. Results are available online. If assistance is required, signal by clearly waving and arm.

Water safety will be provided by lifesavers on boards and inflatable Rescue Craft.

 

Enter LBS event only or both SWIMS

Those entering in the LITTLE BIG SWIM can also enter THE BIG SWIM. As LBS is a 'beginners swim' in ocean swimming those who lack the confidence or ability can have a more experienced swimmer join them by way of entering BOTH events
