MANDATORY KIT

THIS KIT IS MANDATORY. YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO START THE EVENT WITHOUT IT.

  • TOW FLOAT: All competitors in all distances MUST use a tow float for your own safety. You are welcome to bring your own, or you can choose to hire or buy one when you enter online or on the day of the event itself.
  • GREAT RIVER SWIM HAT: All competitors MUST wear the Great River Swim hat provided in your race pack as it contains your timing chip. Please ensure you are wearing the correct hat colour, as these allow us to distinguish competitors in each distance.
  • TIMING DEVICE: A timing device is attached to your Great Lake Swim hat provided as part of your race pack. This MUST be worn by all competitors.
  • WETSUIT: Wetsuits are not mandatory - competitors across all distances can choose whether to wear a wetsuit, but you must state your preference when you register for this event. There are prizes for wetsuit and non-wetsuit winners in each distance.
