NZ Ocean Swim Series – Legend of the Lake

Sat, 17 Feb 2018

The Legend of the Lake, at Rotorua’s stunning Blue Lake adds a fresh new dimension to the New Zealand Ocean Swim Series.

Rotorua is the ultimate weekend destination and caters to the ‘Daring Adventurers’ and ‘Coffee Sippers’ alike. Make a holiday of it by booking in your accommodation early and you too can look forward to heading away for a weekend to remember!

Consisting of four different swim events, the Legend of the Lake provides a swim event for all ages and abilities:

  • ‘I’m Going Long’ 3.5km – a swim around the perimeter of the lake
  • ‘Step it Up’ 1km – around a triangular course, an achievable distance for individuals with swimming experience
  • ‘Give it a Go’ 500m – around a triangular course, a great introduction to open water swimming
  • ‘OceanKids’ 200m – a swim for children aged between 7-12 years old, consisting of a 200m shallow water swim, lined with Surf Life Saving NZ guards.
