Exciting news! The Ruby Swim has a new event for 2020 catered to those with intellectual disabilities. The event will be an altered 100m course, or the swimmer can opt to do the 200m course as to their needs.

All participants leave with a trophy.

Volunteers will be present to assist in the water.

The event start time will be circa 10:20am but entrants must register before 9.30am (or previously on-line).

Local Wanaka group "M!NT Charitable Trust" who aim to create brighter futures for those with additional needs will be there lending a helping hand and recruiting volunteers for 2020 to kick-start some awesome initiatives.


Visit them in the M!NT Tent on site. 

Everyone deserves a chance to have a go, whether you love splashing around in the water, are a complete fish or might just pop your toes in - it is going to be a great day and we hope to see you all down at the lake on the 25th of January. 

We accept on the day entries for this event to be as flexible as possible.
