The Swim Thru Perth is Australia’s oldest open water swim, having first been held in 1912. Although there have been many changes to the race course and distance over the years, the race has always been held in January in the Swan River.
Throughout its 105-year history, the race has only been interrupted by the two World Wars and a polio epidemic. The 2018 swim will be the 99th running of the event.
The Swim Thru Perth raises significant funds for the WA Disabled Sports Association (WADSA), and Pure Leasing’s sponsorship is instrumental in maximising this donation.
