Liberty Wave, an exciting open water swim event aiming to give both Singaporeans and International participants the full open water experience. At last year’s inaugural edition we had a successful run with more than 700 swimmers from 43 different countries. The event will be coming back for a second year with more race categories, and more participants. This year, it will be held on 22 July 2018 @ East Coast Park, Casuarina Grove (next to carpark F2). An estimated 1,800 participants (adults and kids) will be swimming to their heart’s content. There’s something for everyone, whether they are veterans, first-timers or kids who just want to have some fun! In addition to the open water swim, we will also be hosting a lively line-up of fringe events for spectators, while they relax by the beach and cheer on their friends and family. Look forward to bouncy castles for adults and kids, live performances and refreshing coconut cutting. There will be both Individual and Team events, where friends may sign up to race together and build stronger camaraderie. Prizes will also be given out to the fastest swimmers.
