What is the Head Above Water 24 Hour Swimathon?

Our Head Above Water 24 Hour Swimathon is just that. A 24-hour swimming event held at the Collaroy Rockpool, starting at 8am on Saturday, March 14th and finishing at 8am on Sunday, March 15th, 2020. Relays will be held on the Sunday from 8-9.30am

Swimmers pay an entry fee by registering via the rego tab above, and booking their preferred swim time. There will be 4 lanes to cater for all levels of swimming ability. People can choose to swim as few or as many laps as they like, as long as it falls within their allotted time slot.

The registered swimmer can then go onto raise money via their own sponsor page or form a team to raise even more money.

The event will be manned for the duration by a team of professionals who will marshal swimmers in and out of the pool. There will also be an onsite MC to maintain the energy and positivity of the day, as well as catering, merchandise, music and of course, safety, medical and security officials.
