Open Water Swimming is a cardio discipline that puts participants in the middle of everything that Nature can offer. With 456 km of coastline, Hong Kong has some of the world’s most beautiful and easily accessible beaches. In partnership with Victoria Recreation Club (VRC), our Open Water Swimming event will be held at Deep Water Bay on the south side of Hong Kong, where you will enjoy a post-swim celebration with over 200 swimmers, overlooking the South China Sea.
