Corporate Team Challenge

The Corporate Team Challenge is a community based initiative where corporates help raise funds for the Children's Cancer Institute, increase awareness of this important cause and importantly have fun participating in the 1km Around the Island swim.

Make up a team and challenge your other work colleagues, competitors or suppliers in both the water and the fund raising

Corporate Teams of four compete in two trophy events:
  • Corporate Charity Cup - raising money for a very worthwhile charity - the Children's Cancer Institute. The team that raises the largest amount wins
  • Corporate Fastest Team - The winner is the team with the fasted combined times from the 1km race of all four swimmers

Swimmers will swim in the 1km swim in their relevant age group. Corporate swimmers are not eligible for the Elite wave of the 1km


  • Registration is between 8:30am and 9:30am near the Rotunda (near cnr The Esplanade & Mandalong Rd). Please get there early to avoid delays.
  • Your race packs include your timing tag and swim cap.
