The experienced team behind the Christmas 10K just simply love swimming and organising events so they created this event for you, the swimming community. It's a cracker of a swim run by swimmers, for swimmers. Make sure you add the 2019 event to your calendar and we'll see you in December!
Qualify for your Rotto swim
Practise with your paddler
Take up your own challenge
The Fremantle Ports 10km Challenge is an approved qualifier for your Rottnest Channel or Port to Pub solo swim. Complete your qualifier in the perfect location at Coogee Beach and at the perfect time, a week before Christmas. Your official time will automatically be recognised by your designated event manager.
Swimmers in the Fremantle Ports 10km Challenge and the Alcoa 2-Lap Stretch (Solo) & Combo (Duo) events all have the option of swimming alongside their support paddler for the entire course, the only 10km swim in WA you can do this. Great for moral support as well as feeding practice.
The Christmas 10km offers something for everyone - so set yourself a challenge over 1-lap, 2-laps or 3-laps. Ideal for anyone wanting to step up from the shorter races on the calendar. Enjoy a longer distance challenge before you take a break for the festivities of Christmas!
Spreading the Christmas spirit
Don't forget to order your souvenir event merchandise items when registering online before they are sold out.
This year we have those super-practical Christmas 10K Dry Bags and a beautiful Christmas 10K Vacuum Bottle - both ideal to treat yourself or your paddler, or as a Christmas gift for friends or family.
Look out for lots of pre-event fun and games, with online promotions and prize giveaways thanks to the support of our sponsors.
Santa and her merry band of helpers will have everything under control and set you up for an enjoyable and challenging pre-Christmas hit out before your turkey and christmas pudding.
