Become A Half-Marathon Swimmer
... and help us beat cancer.
Designed for confident ocean swimmers looking to reach the next level goal: 5km open water, the half marathon of swims!
After a very successful pilot last summer, this six week intensive training program has been expanded to two locations, training for the Balmoral 5km Swim for Cancer 2019.
As an intensive program, safety is paramount, and there are some simple conditions when joining to make sure the group has proper supervision during some very long training swims in the ocean.
You join this program must be able to:
- Complete a 1km pool swim at 2:00/100m pace; and
- Complete the Macquarie Big Swim (2.7km) or similar difficulty ocean swim race.
All registrations require coach approval.

Train With Purpose
... for a cancer-free future.
Cancer took my aunty while she was surrounded by us all, my newborn Heidi tucked gently into her arms where we knew she would have spent so much more time if it weren’t for cancer robbing them both of that joy. Aunty Ree told me it’s important not to be angry about her cancer but to be brave. I promised her that I would make a difference, I knew I had to join Can Too.

We Balmoral Swim
... and you will too!
Last summer we trialled a 5km half marathon open water swim intensive — with outstanding success!!!
Balmoral 5km Swim for Cancer is an amazing double-loop of the sheltered inner harbour Balmoral Beach limited to 200 swimmers making this an extra special opportunity.
As a "half marathon" swim you'll be pushing yourself further than the vast majority of races in the summer swim calendar.
IMPORTANT: Your Can Too registration fee includes LOTS of value however it does not include race entry.
