Orangetheory NZ Open Water Champs & Epic Swim

The 2023 Orangetheory NZ Open Water Swimming Championships and Epic Swim were held in stunning conditions in Lake Taupo over the weekend. With 155 swimmers in the championships and 635 entries in the public event, there was some excellent racing and opportunities to maximise the lovely summer weather. With an adjustment the swim course having shorter laps of 1.25km in 2023, the crowd along the beach were treated to a better spectacle as the swimmers passed by more frequently, and the feeders were able to relax on the beach in between laps. Thanks to everyone who took part in the event.
The 10km event on Saturday morning took place with compulsory wetsuits, just under 18-degrees. Whilst the water temperature was a little chilly, it was Ashleigh Allred (St Peter’s) who was off to a hot start to establish an early lead and join the leading pack of males including Alex Dunkley (Roskill).
