What to expect:
The Singapore Open Water 2015 is the second series of the Swim Stars Festival. In line with our other events, the Open Water aims to encourage both athletes and non-athletes to develop a passion for swimming by pushing their boundaries and challenging themselves, through swimming in a naturally occurring body of water.
The Singapore Open Water 2015 is a standalone swimming event. We encourage Open Water swimming as it is not only good for cardiovascular health. Swimming in open water also adds resistance which helps build a stronger mind and body. It is open to all swimmers age 14 and above.
There will be two race categories an 800m and 4km:
The 800m race aims to attract sprint swimmers, teams youths and first-timers. The 4km race aims to appeal to swimmers and triathletes who wish to challenge themselves and go beyond their limits. 500 swimmers are expected to attend the Singapore Open Water. It will definitely be an eye-opening experience for swimmers trying Open Water Swimming for the second time and a challenge for the swimmers taking part in the 4km swim. All swimmers will receive a Goodie bag worth $65 and an exclusive Finisher Medal by Singapore Swim Stars! Attractive prizes for the winners.
