Medals for the 2018 Port to Pub, thanks to Blackmores Mentors
All successful swimmers across the finish line will receive a medal along with their towel and cap this year. The medal will be a reminder of your fantastic achievement making it across the Rottnest Channel from Leighton Beach to the Hotel Rottnest either as a solo swimmer or as a team member.
We’re really pleased to have the TAMS Group back on board in 2018. Once again, the TAMS Tugboat will provide a highly visible waypoint at the 1500m mark of the race (swimmers must not proceed past this point until they’ve met up with their paddler and support boat).
Swimmers will be excited to hear Subiaco Sports Massage Clinic will again be providing free sports massage services at the finish line to work through those post-swim aches, as well as discounted treatments in the lead-up to the event.
NURITION ADVICE with David Bryant, Sports Dietitian, Catalyst Dietitian
Last year, my first nutrition tip was that 'you cannot out train a bad diet', so who remembers the alarming statistic I mentioned that just 4% of Australia achieve the recommended 2 serves of fruit and 5 serves of vegetables each day?
Port to Pub’s Ceinwen Roberts has set you a 5 week program to challenge you in the lead up to Christmas. We’ll be helping you to keep your training program on track from now until March. If you’re looking for some ocean swim training, try out one of the open water swim events – there is one on almost every weekend if you look at the following sites:
We all know how amazing it feels to cross the finish line at Rottnest Island after completing the Hotel Rottnest Port to Pub. Being greeted by the cheers of our incredible and supportive community is just the start.
We know that many of you would not have thought it possible until you started training!
That’s why this year we’re encouraging you to ‘Raise The Challenge’ and empower someone you know to start training for the 2018 event. If they accept – you both go into the draw to WIN!
