Generation Homes La Grande Swim

After a few years exploring other locations around the country, we’re thrilled to be returning to the simply beautiful Akaroa Harbour for the Generation Homes La Grande Swim!

Events on offer at Generation Homes La Grande Swim:

  • 750m swim(10yrs +) and 2km Long Swim at Akaroa (12yrs+)

  • Banana Boat OceanKids 100m (7&8yrs), 200m (9&10yrs) & 400m (11&12yrs) at Akaroa

For the first time in the South Island, we’ll be holding a 5km event (the only one outside of our Rotorua event), starting at Wainui, swimmers will head across the harbour to finish in front at the Akaroa Recreation Grounds. There will also be 750m and 2km swims, as well as the Banana Boat OceanKids events for the younger tadpoles with three distances available.

In collaboration with the Akaroa Long Lunch, a festival atmosphere will have restaurants serving lunch to a series of long tables. There will be a licensed garden bar on site and auctions running throughout the afternoon, raising money for a local charity. Tickets and info coming soon!
