We know that this will come as a disappointment to many, it is to us as well, but the 2021 Cape Paterson Aquathon will be postponed until January 2022. This would have been our 25th Cape Paterson Aquathon and we look forward to celebrating this milestone in 2022.
Please understand this is not a decision we have taken lightly. Our primary concern is the safety of all our competitors, volunteers, spectators and local community who support the event every year.
We thank everyone for their ongoing support and hope to see you back in 2022.
Please note – it has also been decided that competitors will not lose their consecutive year tally.
Thank you for your understanding.
CovidSafe Cape Paterson Aquathon 2021 is going virtual
SAVE THE DATE: Sunday 17 January 2021 While it is with great sadness that we won’t be able to meet in person for the Cape Paterson Aquathon this summer, we are excited to bring you a one-off event that promises to be unlike any other Aquathon we will ever experience.
In the spirit of this much-loved community event, we are going to celebrate the 25th Cape Paterson Aquathon. It is “the physically distanced but socially connected” event of summer.
To ensure that your preparation for the annual event does not go to waste, we have gone virtual. The event will be open to all past and potentially future competitors, spectators and volunteers. Even better:
No entry fee
No age limit
No set course, no set venue
No fitness requirement
No set time of day
No wet-suit required
In a nutshell, you set your own fitness challenge for the day, register it before the day and log completion with us. We will make sure it counts as a completed Aquathon!
In the lead up, we will share Aquathon stories over the past 25 years on our Facebook page, and invite you to share your stories too.
More details to come. Watch this space.
We look forward to your continued support of this event.
