THE RUBY SWIM

Date: Saturday Jan 27th 2018

A fast becoming iconic event around the local island landmark, The Ruby brings something new (and different) into play which features a ‘race’ at a good middle distance between a half ironman (1.9km) and the full distance (3.8km). The circumnavigation of Ruby Island at 2.5km fits the bill. New For 2018 is a 10km marathon length.

But this slightly quirky event is not just about the how fast you can go.
Ruby Island is an icon in the landscape, featured in thousands of photos and in the lore of Wanaka. It stands as a sentinel – in sight, but also just out of reach. To swim around it is the most brilliant experience and it holds a special surprise as you swim past the southern tip. So race it or experience it. It’s a good outing either way.
