Did you manage to get one of the 4,500 tickets for this year’s Limmat Swim before they sold out? Once again tickets for this Zurich event went like hot cakes and the 55th Limmat Swim proved to be one of the most popular Summer activities in the city.

Before getting to jump in the water there was a well organised queuing system which stretched all along the street and around the interior of the Frauenbadi.

If you didn’t get to see the event take a look at our photos by photographer Carmen Sirboiu. Carmen was ready with her camera at catch the start of the race as people jumped off the jetty at the Frauenbadi into the river Limmat. From the Frauenbadi it was a two kilometre route to the end point at Oberer Letten Badi.

The weather wasn’t the sunniest but the water temperature was fine and as usual there was good cheer as people floated or swam (or both) along with this year’s mascot, a starfish.

I must say the starfish wasn’t as easy to hold on to, or to steer for that matter either, as previous floats.  However it was a wonderful experience and great fun!

Apparently due to the large amount of rain which has recently fallen in Glarnerland, the river was particularly full and the water was flowing at the rate of 108 cubic centimetre per second.

At the end of the swim all participants were given a hot drink and a souvenir beach towel to commemorate the 55th edition of this great Zurich tradition. If you missed it this time, don’t forget to register for next year’s Limmat swim. Tickets go on sale online on the Wednesday afternoon before the event.
