Every Solo swimmer must qualify to participate and this qualifying swim only needs to be done before event day, not before you enter.

For 2022 we are relaxing these rules so that swimmers can complete their own qualifying swims.

The following minimum qualification requirements still apply:

  • You must have completed an open water swim of 10km or greater in under 4 hours, within 12 months of the event date OR
  • You must have completed an open water swim of 20km or greater within 24 months of the event date

Any organised swim with a distance of 10km+ can be used to meet the qualifying time.  It is your responsibility to check the cut-off times for any event you do participate in.

If you’d like to complete your own swim, we just need proof of your swim distance and time, EG from your Garmin (file link or screenshot).  This can be uploaded to your entry records on our EventPlus online registration system (once you have entered).

If you would like clarification on an event or the above requirements, please email World Series Swims at:
