All you need to know
Team registrations will open in February 2020.
A team consists of up to 6 team members, including the team captain. Members including the captain can be any age or ability, but need to be able to swim a 25 m length.
We expect to be oversubscribed in 2020 and early registration is strongly recommended, to ensure that your team can take part.
The 2020 Generation Homes RotarySwimarathon will be held at the Stanmore Bay Pool and Leisure Centre - 159 Brightside Rd, Stanmore Bay, Whangaparaoa 0932.
The 2020 Generation Homes RotarySwimarathon has exclusive use of the Stanmore Bay Pool all day, from 9 am to 5 pm so there will be plenty of parking for swimmers and spectators.

The 45-minute swim sessions across all 7 lanes of the pool are split into Fun and Competitive sections: The Fun sessions, are for swimmers of all ages and abilities, from mum & bubs to grandparents and all ages in-between, and start on the hour at 9 am, 10 am, 11 am, 2 pm, 3 pm and 4 pm.
The Competitive team sessions start at 12 noon and 1pm and are open to serious competition for the Basil Blackham Memorial Challenge Cup, which will be awarded to the team swimming the most lengths in 45 minutes (target 200+ lengths)
In both sections, teams of 6 are split into 3 at each end of the pool, then each swimmer takes turns, relay style, to swim. This makes Fun sessions really easy for everyone and the Competitive sessions really fast! Both are great spectator opportunities and friends and family should come along and cheer their swimmers.
