800m and Family Fun Day

Geribo Cup 2019

For our final meet of the season this Saturday we will be holding the 800m Open Freestyle Championships followed by our Family Fun Day.

The early start and hotly-contested relay race for our chocolate trophy will be the perfect lead in to St Mark’s Drummoyne School Fete that day.

800m Championships – 7am

The 800m Championships will start at the earlier time of 7am. Everyone who is able to swim the 16 laps is welcome to participate. Please arrive at the pool before 7am to sign in for the race.

Family Fun Day – 8am

The Family Fun Day will start after the 800m Championships, at around 8am, so you can arrive at this time if you are not swimming in the 800m.

We will be holding lots of fun races and relays, including boogie board races and a relay race for the tastiest prize of the season – the Geribo Cup chocolate trophy!

Remember to bring along your boogie board, li-lo and thongs for some fun races in the pool!

Relay Teams

There will be two 4x50m relay events on Saturday:

  • Family relay
