City Swim, the UAE’s largest open water race will take place in Abu Dhabi on Saturday, 21 January for the second event in the series with race registration closing this Thursday.
Originating in the canals in Amsterdam and the Hudson River in New York, the open water swimming event will take place at Le Meridien, Abu Dhabi and organisers are expecting another great turnout with swimmers of all abilities taking the plunge at this stunning location.
The inaugural event took place in Dubai and saw over 200 swimmers take to the water covering a range of distances.
All swims are classified for different age groups with distances varying from 250 meters to 2,500 meters. Each swim will be manned by expert kayakers who will be at hand every stroke of the way and a post-race celebration will take place for everyone who has taken part as well as for friends and family.
Stuart Birkwood, General Manager, Le Méridien Abu Dhabi said: “We are continuously looking at new ways to showcase our property in Abu Dhabi and partnering with City Swim UAE has enabled us to do just that.
“Sporting events have become increasingly important and we are delighted to be part of the series. We look forward to welcoming all swimmers and their friends and family to the event.”
The City Swim UAE series continues at the Sheraton Sharjah Beach Resort & Spa on 4 February, followed by Ajman Saray, a Luxury Collection Resort in Ajman on 4 March.
