Small Fry & Big Fish Swims


Welcome to the 9th edition of the Small Fry & Big Fish Swims from the Tri2O Swim Centre.

The Small Fry Swim – 1500m Open Water Swim

The Small Fry swim event offers the perfect opportunity to those looking to conquer the Olympic distance swim portion of a triathlon for the first time, to those wanting to practice that unique feeling of a mass deep water start and perhaps just trying to improve their swim times for a series of events to come through the summer season.

The Big Fish Swim – 3800m Open Water Swim

The Big Fish Swim will provide a great test for the more experienced swimmer and a perfect start to the racing season. This 3.8km swim will be a ideal time trial for those looking at Ironman events through the summer and will be brilliant time in the water for those that just love to swim.

Every swimmer will get a finisher medal and receive an iTAB, engraved with their name and swim time, in the post a few days after the swim.
