The Flowers International 5k and 10k

The Cayman Islands is an idyllic location for open water swimming. The pristine sandy white beaches, crystal clear water, exotic tropical fish and flat calm seas offer some of the world’s best conditions for longer swimming distances. The team at the Flowers One Mile Sea Swim are excited to offer distance swimmers a new and challenging addition to the Flowers Swimming calendar. This year we will be introducing the first ever Flowers international 5k and 10k events.

The World’s most scenic 5k and 10k will take place on Monday, June 12th, 2017 following the Flowers One Mile Sea Swim on Saturday, June 10th, 2017. Local and visiting swimming aficionados are encouraged to make it a swimming weekend by participating on Saturday in the mile swim and then on Monday in the 5k or 10k events. These new events follow in the Flowers tradition, guaranteeing 1 in 5 random prize odds. Great prizes include, trips to Toronto, New York and all Cayman Airways destinations. Other random prizes include rounds of golf at the Britannia Golf Club, brunch at Hemingway’s and breakfast at the Britannia Grill and lots of other exciting prizes. The full list will appear on soon.

Trophies will be awarded to male and female 1st, 2nd and 3rd overall winners and age group certificates for all age groups winners.

The overall male and female winners for the 5k and 10k will receive a free round trip ticket from North America to the 2017 Flowers Sea Swim, along with one week hotel accommodation and rent a car.  Each finisher completing within the cut off times will receive a medal and goodie bag.
