Take the plunge and challenge yourself in this year’s Starship Swimathon while raising vital funds for Starship New Zealand’s national children’s hospital.

The Starship Swimathon, sponsored by Barfoot & Thompson, is the ideal event for all levels and kinds of swimmers with both indoor and open water events on offer.

You don’t have to be a pro.

It’s a great way to get fit while supporting Starship families with all funds raised going towards the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

The open water event will challenge participants to swim up to 12x1 mile swims, starting a new mile on the hour every hour throughout the day.
