5km - It's not a long way. Is it? But it's enough. Well, it's all about your perspective as it will be plenty for some.

BN3TH Underwear | The Ruby

Training for something big, hairy & audacious? A full distance Ironman - test yourself over 3.8km with two laps of the Island. Gauge your speed and find your place.

Wanacare Pharmacy | The Ruby

This is what it's all about!

One iconic 2.5km lap around the Island with cash prizes and ring bling for the very fast. 'Our' race. A swim race like no other.

The Return of The Jetty | The Ruby Swim

You'll love this! 1.2km. Swim to The Jetty at Ruby Island, then take a running leap off it to start the swim home! Best picture of the day. Don't trip...


It's the ultimate destination swim. Conquer the crossing to the Island and we'll give you a boat ride back. It's an awe inspiring 600m. Enjoy the view...

C'mon Kids! No wetsuit required! But watchout between your toes - eeewwwhhh eels! (not really...)

The 200m swim is the stepping stone to more.
