The 2nd annual 5 km race, The Five, is held on November 9th with a start and finish at South Bay Beach in Hong Kong. This year, there will also be a Junior Five category for youth at 250m and 400m.
“We will also have the ability to put a GPS tracker on your Swim Safe buoy or in your wetsuit,” explains race director Doug Woodring. “This tracking piece will put your track on a group map of all swimmers, so anyone in the world and those on the World Open Water Swimming Series can follow your swim. You can later check your course, speed, and watch your race in animated form with the tracking.”
