Similar to tens of thousands of open water swimming events around the world that have been cancelled due to COVID-19, the Aqua Sphere North Shore 5K/10K Swim is cancelled for 2020.

The North Shore Swim Series event is held between Sunset Beach and Waimea Bay on Oahu. Last year’s event was held on September 7th and was remarkable as the event had two 75-year-olds finish (Ulrich Klinke and Carl Kawauchi) with an average age of 43.4 years among its finishers.
