The Balmoral Swim for Cancer, as it is officially known, is one of Sydney’s open water swimming gems.
Not one to puff its chest out, the Balmoral Swim has been quietly giving swimmers a delightful swim at one of, if not the, most beautiful harbour beaches in Sydney since 1990. If it wasn’t for the great job they do of raising money for many cancer-related charities, locals would probably rather you didn’t get to know about this pristine flat water location!
But, be it as it is, you now know about the swim and we implore you to get along and support this wholly volunteer and charity-run event.
This year the event consists of:
- Balmoral Team Challenge – 4 swimmers each swim 200m (more info).
- Schools Challenge Relay –3 divisions, Senior, Intermediate and Junior. Four swimmers each swim 200m (more info).
- 5km, 2.5km and 1km Ocean Swims –numbers capped across the three distances (more info).
- Junior 200m –open to children 12 years and under, the course is split between girls and boys (more info)
