Annual Baths2Bar Swim Best Yet

Monday, December 20th, 2010

Organisers of the Newcastle Permanent Baths2Bar Community Ocean Swim say this year was the best year to date in every aspect of the event.

The conditions on Sunday were ideal for ocean swimming. Air temp was mild and water temp was perfect at 19°.

“The weather was good, last year the water was like a washing machine, but this year it was perfect. We had more entrants this year and more community support,” said Cooks Hill Surf Club President, Andrew Howard.

The annual 1.5 km swim from Merewether Baths to Bar Beach was won by a female for the first time. Erin Killey took out first place and female Eliza Smith closely followed in second place. The first male across the line was Heath Winning, followed by Josh Hollard.

Overall the day was a great success, with close to 400 entrants and a large spectator turnout. Organisers have reported they received overwhelming positive feedback on the management of the event.

The Marketown Dash4Cash was won by swim champions Eliza Smith and Heath Winning in their respective races. And the Cetnaj Bolt for Bucks 2 km run was won by Josh Hollard (who was also the male runner up in the swim).

FordComm provided publicity assistance and graphic design services. This year the event received some excellent media coverage on NBN and in The Herald.
