ABOUT THE AWARDS
NZ is right at the top of the world when it comes to ultra distance swimming. The Awards is a time to publicly celebrate these achievements.
It is also a night for the Open Water Swimming community at large to come together and celebrate our sport. The awards are being held every two years and this time, the Capital gets to host the Awards.
Every attending swimmer who has swum a solo swim of 20 km and more anywhere in the world in the 2018-20 season will receive the NZ Ultra Swim Plaque of Legends. The Season is 1 June to 31 May.
Other Awards - Three recipients will receive Lifetime Awards for their Service and Achievements in the Sport. In this category, we are honouring the pioneers of the sport.
We will also award and reward all historical swims since 1960 that attend.
Join us in Wellington on Saturday 12th June 2021 for the Awards.
