Lochmara Big Swim

1 02 2010


On 28 Feb, Lochmara Lodge has their annual Fun Festival. As part of this they have the Lochmara Big Swim, which is a 750m swim from across the bay back to Lochmara. I know, 750m is only a warm up, but you could swim to the start of course and get 1500m in. Awesome first prize of a free night for two at the lodge – hmm could be tempted.

They are offering discounted water taxi rates for the day – $30 adult return from Picton ($15 kids). Entry to the race is free.

For those wanting some more intensive training than just the swim, it is a 7.5km kayak from Picton across to Lochmara Lodge, around 20km along the Queen Charlotte Track back to Anakiwa, and about 27km from Anakiwa along the road back to Picton.   They can also do bike/kayak transfers for people who want to bike/kayak/run in from Anakiwa or Mistletoe Bay along the track.  For more information go to www.lochmaralodge.co.nz, or phone Allanah at the Lodge on 573 4554
