It is with great regret that we have decided to cancel the Swim Thru Perth event
that was due to be held on Sunday 31 January 2021.

As custodian of Australia’s oldest open water swim, Event Coordinator Claremont Masters Swimming Club has been presented with an unacceptable number of issues outside of our control that will create potential safety concerns for our competitors. Restricted access to the start area and buildings due to ongoing construction work will severely limit our ability to deliver the event that you have all grown to love and support. Coupled with ongoing restrictions with COVID, we will not be able to deliver the safe and enjoyable event that we would want to host and that you would want to swim.

The Swim Thru Perth was first held in 1912 and has only previously been interrupted by the World Wars and a polio epidemic. We hope to be able to deliver the 102nd Swim Thru Perth in January 2022 and look forward to welcoming you all back to this historic community event.
