MS MegaSwim – February 2023

Friday 17th February 2023 – Saturday 18th February 2023

Every year, the Yarra Roughies participates in the 24 hour MS MegaSwim to raise funds for the Multiple Sclerosis association. The event takes place at Fitzroy pool from 6pm Friday night until 6pm Saturday. Teams of around 15 swimmers must have a swimmer in the pool at all times during the 24 hours.

Roughies usually has a full team, and rosters 2 swimmers and 1 lap counter on for 2 hour shifts, with the first 4 hours and last 4 hours involving as many of the team as possible.

The event itself is a lot of fun, with marquees, live music, commentary and food / coffee provided by the Fitzroy Lions Club. If you have not participated in a MegaSwim before, it should be on your bucket list!
