The 2022 TOSWA Shadeview Swim Series will comprise 4 swims with short and long and distance options.
This year the Junior Giants events will give the opportunity for kids aged 10 to 13 years to compete with swimmers their own age.
The series will have some great prizes from our series sponsor Shadeview, and cash prizes for short and long course series winners!
Competitors will accumulate points according to distance and number of swims completed. Competitors will gain more points completing all short, or all long distances, but can mix up short and long distance swims if they choose. Competitors doing the series need to register for each race individually.
The Salt 66 Magnetic Island to Townsville swim rounds out the year of open water swimming in Townsville with an 8km crossing of Cleveland Bay from Picnic Bay on Magnetic island to Strand Park in Townsville.
