Fiji Swims, one of the most beautiful swims in the world, is offering one lucky swimmer in the USA the chance to win five nights (twin room) free accommodations in beautiful Fiji (so you can bring a spouse, coach or friend) to compete in its 1K, 2.7K or 18K swims on August 13th and 15th.
Fiji Swims features one of the most stunning marathon swims in the world: the 18K Fiji Swim – Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa to Beachcomber Island Relay or Solo Swim held on August 13th. The Fiji Swims also includes two solo swims to choose from: the 2.7K Fiji Swim – Beachcomber Island or the 1K Fiji Swim – Treasure Island to Beachcomber Island.
Swimmers enjoy safely swimming over a fringing coral reef teeming with tropical fish.
Another highlight of the Fiji Swims is the opportunity to meet and swim alongside Olympic greats including Australia's legendary Shane Gould (3 gold, 1 silver and 1 bronze in 1972) and Graeme Brewer (1980 bronze medalist). Previous Olympian participants in the Fiji Swims include Natalie Coughlin, Dana Vollmer, Alison Wagner and Debbie Meyer (USA), Danyon Loader (New Zealand) and Murray Rose, John Konrads and Neil Rogers (Australia).
Fiji Swims has Fiji Rules that are fitting for this laid-back nation: the 18K Fiji Swim - Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa to Beachcomber Island Relay race rules allow as many swimmers as safely can fit on the support boat and the length of time of each swimmer can be different, while those in the 1K Fiji Swim – Treasure Island to Beachcomber Island are allowed to wear fins.

The 18K race can be done solo, duo or as a team of five, with race organizers able to partner the lucky winner with a team with swimmers of similar ability. The lucky swimmer will have to pay their share of the half-day charter boat that will be arranged by the race organizers.
