Swim the Bridge offers Aucklanders an unprecedented opportunity to swim beneath one of New Zealand's most recognisable icons. The event lets participants have a crack at a single crossing, or prove their worth by tackling the return journey.

The single one-kilometre course takes you from Northcote Point, under the eastern clip-on lanes, to the finish line at the Harbour Bridge Park. If you're feeling gutsy, the two-kilometre challenge shoots you off from Parkside, out to Northcote, and back again. With Swim the Bridge, you can experience the City of Sails true to form, from the water.

Whether you're a champion swimmer or confidently competent, this event offers a major bucket list tick, as well as a fresh perspective of the Harbour Bridge, all rolled into one salty experience.
