Swim the Distance

Swim the Distance is an indoor swimming challenge that encourages participants to swim 45.5km over a 2 month period (the distance from Gisborne to Mahia).

The challenge runs every year, from 1 August – 30 September, and encourages the community to swim the distance between Midway Beach and Mahia (45.5km).

Swim the Distance is a partnership event run by Sport Gisborne and the Gisborne Olympic Pools. Proceeds from the event go to a local charity.
