ABOUT THE AWARDS
NZ is right at the top in the world when it comes to ultra distance swimming. The Awards is a time to publicly celebrate this season's achievements.
It is also a night for the Open Water Swimming community at large to come together and celebrate our sport. This is our night.
Every attending swimmer who has swum a solo swim of 20 km and more anywhere in the world in the 2017/18 season will receive the NZ Ultra Swim Plaque of Recognition. The Season is 1 June to 31 May.
Other Awards - three recipients will receive Lifetime Awards for their Service and Achievements in the Sport.
The Awards also will recognise the achievements of Swimmers in past years - attending swimmers from Past years will also be honoured with the NZ Award as much as revenue will allow. Awards for Past years will be a catch up feature of future Awards.
NZ Ultra Marathon Swimmer of the Year Award - from this Season's class of ultra swimmers ONE swimmer will be voted the NZ Ultra Swimmer of the Year. The singular award recognises ultra swimming as a truly gender neutral sport.
