Jeju Big Swim 2011 will be held on Saturday August 13th. This year it is a community event whereby everyone can participate. Once again, Jeju Big Swim is an official event of the World Environment and Peace Summer School.
This year there will be many ways to participate. There will be a 50 metre swim for kids and beginners, a 1 km swim and a 10km. There will also be an opportunity for non-swimmers to walk instead of swim.
We've had great support - World Environment and Peace Summer School provided my air ticket, Southern Cross University provided free pool and gym membership so i could train, and Mr Lee, of Mr Lee's bike shop here in Jeju has given me a scooter to use while i'm here.
The web page is slowly coming together at www.jejubigswim.com thanks to Eugene and Kenny. We've also fired up the Facebook Jeju Big Swim community page and (Korean) Cyworld will be operational soon (thanks Kenny!).
Jeju Big Swim is the result of a lot of hard work by the Jeju Big Swim team. More about the team coming soon......
