Swimming Events

All swim events swum with incoming tide - Medal for all finishers (45min time limit for Mile). 



Race Timing

Officially this is an UNTIMED event. Being tidal, times are deemed irrelevant. Whilst times will be provided in results, these are not reflective of when swimmers cross the finish line but when they come past the timing station towards the end of the finsih shute.

Disabled Participants

Please advise so that we can assist you on the day. Disabled swimmers may ONLY take part in the Disabled Mile swim and will be ferried to the start of the race by boat.

Wakaberry Kids Races
