Mandatory kit and age requirements
Competitors in the 3.9km and 2km events can choose to wear a wetsuit or not and must do so as part of their online entry. There are prizes for both wetsuit and non-wetsuit overall winners in each distance.
All of those participating in the 750m event must wear wetsuits.
- Tow float
All competitors in all distances must use a tow float. This is for reasons of safety. You are welcome to bring your own or you can choose to hire or purchase one from us as part of your online entry.
- Great Fjord Swim hat
All competitors in all distances must wear the GFS swim hats that will be provided with their race pack at registration. These are coloured by distance and will allow us to distinguish competitors in each distance.
- Timing device
A timing device will be provided as part of the race pack for each competitor in each distance and must be worn around the ankle.
All competitors in all distances must be 16 years of age or over. All of those who are 16 or over but under 18 years of age must have a parent/guardian complete a consent form on their behalf which then must be brought to registration.
You MUST be able to complete 2km confidently before taking part in the 2km event and 3.9km confidently before taking part in the 3.9km event. If you cannot do this then the 750m event is more suited for you this time.
