Demolish – Clarence Valley
Nymboida, NSW, Australia

The 2017 and 2018 events were well received and provided participants and spectators with a truly memorable experience amongst some spectacular scenery. Gorge swims were a real highlight of the run stage in 2018 due to the hot conditions and these will again feature in 2019. We are hoping to announce another major fun element into the run this year, stay tuned for news on that. The Clarence River turned on beautiful water for a fast and scenic paddle last year with a few fun rapids to spike adrenalin levels. Rumour has it that some competitors went back to repeat some rapids during the race because it was such good fun! The weekend will conclude with the mountain bike stage on the fast and flowing Bom Bom trails. No big climbs here, just crank up the small slopes and let rip down the other sides for a big dose of sweet fun.

What you need to know about Swimming Events

Swimming races and open water swimming events generally tend to be between 1—10km in length, however, more challenging swims can be up to 80km long. Swims over 10km are classed as Marathon Swims, These events take place in lakes or in the sea, often with a great atmosphere and a festival vibe. If you’re just starting out, get some practice in a pool first, temperature and choppiness are factors to consider before diving in.

From a quick dip in Dorney lake to mastering the Windermere One Way, we’ve collected some of the best open water swimming races below. If you’re feeling adventurous and want to throw in some other disciplines, you can check out our pages on Swimrun & Triathlon too.
