Since the original date, we have been working with local authorities to identify an alternative date. However, with other events already scheduled for Balmoral Beach, and Council already having closed the beach to special events from early May (to allow scheduled public works along the beach), it has not been possible to identify a new date this season so unfortunately, this year’s swim cannot be rescheduled

For all those already entered, as per out our conditions of entry, a refund is not possible but credit will be given so entry for the 2018 Balmoral Swim for Cancer will be free. Entrants in the 5km, upon a request to OceanSwims by April 21st will be refunded less a $10 administration fee.

As the event expenses are met by our sponsors, all entry funds will be donated to the Children’s Cancer Institute.

An announcement will be made on the total donations received for the Children’s Cancer Institute. Thank you for your generosity.

We thank all our competitors, fundraisers, volunteers and organising committee. This is the first time in 26 years we have needed to cancel the cancel or postpone the event. We look forward to your participation on Sunday March 18, 2018.
