The 18th annual Sri Chinmoy National Capital Swim on Sunday 28 November 2021 sees the event increase in distance to the standard “Marathon” distance of 10 kilometres.
The race will start earlier than in previous years – at 6.30am for solo swimmers, and 6.45am for relay teams. To make up the additional distance, the course has been reconfigured, with the 3rd transition now on the northern shore at Galipolli Reach, near Rond Terrace.
ONLINE ENTRY WILL OPEN ONE MONTH PRIOR TO THE RACE DATE – ON THURSDAY 28 OCTOBER AT 8AM – FOR THOSE ELIGIBLE TO ENTER THE ACT.
From end to end, Lake Burley Griffin presents pristine natural beauty, a playground for recreational enjoyment and competitive sports, and a grand arena for the display of national monuments, symbols and icons. Government House, Parliament House (old and new), the National Museum, National Library, National Gallery and High Court grace its shores with natural reserves, manicured parklands, beaches and civic promenades.
Tackle the entire length of the lake as a major athletic goal; or join with friends to complete the journey in relay.
