The Cold Half Marathon Swim is a 15km winter marathon charity swim on Hong Kong Island from Stanley Main Beach to Deep Water Bay Beach. This is a solo or 2-person relay race.
For those who love swimming in the chill but mind the extreme distance, you can sign up for the 1.5km Cold Plunge race, which happens concurrently in Deep Water Bay Beach. This is the only winter swimming event of its kind in Hong Kong.
For extreme triathletes, the inaugural ColdXtreme Challenge starts with a Cold Half solo or relay swim, followed by a virtual self-supported 80km cycle and 20km run on Hong Kong Island.
The event is organized by AVRA and supports Splash Foundation. Splash Foundation provides free learn-to-swim lessons to the underprivileged communities in Hong Kong. It has taught thousands how to swim and some of their graduates have become active open water swimmers. Please consider sponsoring 1 or more entries at a discounted rate for Splash swimmers.
