Toowoomba Tadpoles 1500m Swim in July 2020

July 1, 2020 @ 8:00 am - July 31, 2020 @ 5:00 pm AEST

Yes it’s on again. Due to the successful event over the past 2 years, we are again holding it in 2020 with some special changes.

The Event now includes a special swim as a memorial to our swimmer “Debra Wagner” who passed away last year participating in her beloved distance swim.

How to compete

  • It is simple, you just need to pace yourself to complete a 1500m swim in a 25m pool with a recorded time.
  • You can choose from either freestyle, breaststroke or backstroke, but the entire 1500 must be completed in one stroke only.
  • Each swimmer may do 1 or more of the different strokes. Cost is $20 per swimmer (not per swim). (Great bargain if you complete all 3)
  • Remember it’s very important to have adequate fitness levels before undertaking such a swim.

Alternatively, you can swim your 1500 freestyle with fins and enter the “Debra Wagner Memorial swim”

  • This is only for swimmers not entering any other swim in this postal event.
  • Funds raised from this memorial event will be donated to a charity.

You are required to be a financial member of Masters Swimming Australia.

You must swim the event between 1 July and 31 July 2020.
