open water swimming
Jump in the Spiegelwaal
On Sunday morning 8 July 2018 Gay Sport Nijmegen (GSN) will organize again an open water swimming event for LGBTI-swimmers in the Netherlands as part of the Pink Summer Sports Tournament. We hope it will be as succesfull as last year edition.
The open water swimming event will have several distances (750 and 1500 meter) and the first contest will start around 11 o’clock.
The Spiegelwaal is a new secondary channel of the river Waal and was built as part of the flood protection programme. With the Spiegelwaal Nijmegen has created a new urban park and the new bridges received awards for design and use of materials.
The Spiegelwaal will also be the finish point of the Pink Summer Sports cycling tour and the Pink Summer Sports long-distance road running. After completion of the various disciplines a communal lunch will be possible.
