Harcourts Cooper & Co Swim the Bridge – 11 March 2023

Much like the city of Auckland itself, the Harcourts Cooper & Co Swim the Bridge is big, bold and unforgettable! Spanning the Waitemata Harbour as one of the most recognisable landmarks in the country, the Auckland Harbour Bridge is the most high-profile event location in the Series, drawing record-breaking number of swimmers and their supporters on both sides of the harbour.

There’s nothing quite like swimming across the most prominent marine highway in New Zealand, under the shadow of the busiest bridge, and emerging on the city side of the harbour to the roar of the finish line crowd to really make you feel like an absolute champion, especially wearing your exclusive finisher’s medal!

Swims on offer:

  • Double Crossing – 2km
  • Single Crossing – 1km

Cut off times for Harcourts Cooper & Co Swim the Bridge are strict due to needing to reopen the harbour. If you fall too far behind the main pack our trained lifeguards may ask you to board the boat as this will stretch the resources for the rest of the field.

  • 2km Double Crossing 1hr 10mins
  • 1km Single Crossing 35mins

"My sincere thanks for putting this fantastic event together. The pre-race information was very clear and the organisation on the day was excellent. For me, the event was a dream come true. I am still on a high two days after the event, even though the body is still pretty sore and tired."
