Based on the newly-announced Government mandate around mass gatherings of 500 people or more, and our own commitment to health and safety, this event has been cancelled. All registered swimmers will receive an email regarding their entry.

Think you’ve done it all? How about taking on the urban ocean swim challenge of a lifetime? The Harcourts Cooper & Co Swim the Bridge is back again to give you a whole new perspective on one of Auckland’s most famous structures as well as an incredible swimming experience.

Events on offer at Harcourts Cooper & Co Swim the Bridge:

  • 1km Single Crossing (10yrs +)

For the 2020 event we’ll have an all new water entry, an improved swim exit, a family-friendly atmosphere with live music and experiences and the chance for your supporters to once again, cheer you on up close.
