Swim the iconic Hellespont Race and visit Gallipoli, a place that is symbolic of Australia’s identity in an effort to support the men and women who have served our nation.
If you’ve ever dreamed of swimming from one continent to another for a great cause, Swim for Soldier On is your chance!
Join us on the ultimate world swim in 2018, as one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world is closed to traffic for the annual “Victory Day” Hellespont swimming race. This event gives you a truly unique opportunity to swim across the legendary Dardanelles Strait from Europe to Asia.
The famous poet, Lord Byron first swam the Hellespont in 1810. Since then, it has been considered the epitome of open water swimming and is at the very top of any adventurous swimmer’s wish list.
On this challenge, you will also have the opportunity to visit Gallipoli, a place that is symbolic of Australia’s identity.
Spots are limited, so don’t miss out – join today and start your adventure.
