The information on this page is not yet confirmed, and may be based on the previous years' edition.

The event is a sprint distance with a total swim of 2km and total run of 8km (approx) with the longest swim section of around 500m.The event caters equally to seasoned swimrunners competing for the top spots and also for the newcomers to the sport who compete for the experience and to challenge themselves!The run route will therefore be held on designated pathways and not an extreme trail.CREATE A TEAM!As in the SwimRun tradition, individuals need to buddy up and participate in pairs ie you start and cross the finish line together with both of you swimming and running the course. The team’s finish time is counted when both participants cross the finish line. Unlike purely individual sports, SwimRun gives an opportunity for mixed-gender teams to compete as well as single-gender teams, and for friends to have a great time training and participating together!
