The Sri Chinmoy Lake Swims on Sunday, 19 February 2017 are Canberra's oldest lake swims, held since 1987. There are three distance options: 5km, 2.5km and 500m.
The swims are intended as a true test of swimming ability and skill, for swimmers not wearing wetsuits. Hence awards are presented only to those swimmers who complete the event without wearing a wetsuit. Swimmers may wear wetsuits if they desire, though they will not be eligible for awards. Results of all finishers will be published on this website, with the wearers of wetsuits noted in a separate section.
