Legend of the Lake – Saturday 18 February 2017

Do you fancy a legendary challenge at the legendary Blue Lake, Rotorua? Of course you do because you are a legend who likes to go away for the weekend with friends and family to challenge yourself then celebrate and relax with other like-minded legends.

Rotorua is the ultimate weekend destination and caters to the ‘Daring Adventurers’ and ‘Coffee Sippers’ alike. Make a holiday of it by booking in your accommodation early and you too can look forward to heading away for a weekend to remember.

With it’s inaugural event in Feb 2016, the Legend of the Lake quickly become a highlight of the New Zealand Ocean Swim Series. Including the full range of event distances from the ‘OceanKids’ 200m kids event, the ‘Give it a Go’ 500m, the ‘Step it Up’ 1000m and the ‘I’m Going Long’ 3.5km swim – there really is a swim (or two!!) for everyone.

As pictured, this is a stunning setting that adds a ‘fresh’ new dimension to the Series. The lake is very clean, and it will be nice and warm too (average February temp between 21-23 degrees)!!

Special thanks to Donelley Sawmillers, proud sponsors of the Legend of the Lake event, who will once again be sprucing up the event prize giving with a wooden podium for our medal winners!

Your swim entry will contain;

  • Timing Chip and Strap
  • Silicone Swim Cap (that you must wear for the event)
  • Bag Label
