The Samoa Swim Series offers more than its tagline of ‘3 great swims in 3 days’.
It includes a parade, a school visit, side tours, a prize giving and two swims on the big island of Savai’i. Two swims will be held in Faga and Manase with an overnight stay at Tanu Beach Fales and other accommodation on the north coast of Savai’i. The third swim is at the Sinalei Reef Resort in Upolu.
There are also unofficial swims to cater for those who arrive before the series and those who want to stay after the series is over.
There is also the Pacific Open Water Challenge, 10 km and 5 km races over two days that precede the Series, and the Warrior Race to meet the demand by swimmers who want to participate in Samoa’s premier triathlon as well as in the Swim Series.
The total is one trip of non-stop athletic challenges over 9 days with the Warrior Race, the Pacific Open Water Challenge and the Samoa Swim Series.
