The Murray Rose Malabar Magic Ocean Swim will be back on February 21st 2021.  This year we are offering a 1km, 2.5km & NEW 5km swim, all in the safe calm waters of Malabar Beach, Malabar. We look forward to seeing you for the new COVID safe swim in 2021. 

We are working with the appropriate authorities - NSW Health, Randwick Council and various regulatory bodies - to deliver a COVID safe event and will provide more detailed information closer to the event day. We will continue to monitor other events and seeking the official direction from the authorities and will implement all logistical changes required to ensure a COVID safe swim.

We can advise that the 2021 event will reflect the NSW Health guidelines around social distancing. Spectators and friends will be limited. Wave starts will be conducted  a "Rolling Start" to ensure a safe event.

We encourage you to keep up your training and start fundraising as we work hard to continue to deliver the great event the Murray Rose Malabar Magic has become.

About Murray Rose

Murray Rose, AM (6 January 1939 - 5 April 2012) was a six-time Olympic medalist (four gold, one silver, one bronze), and at one time held the world records in the 400-metre, 800-metre, and 1500-metre freestyle (long course). He made his Olympic debut at the 1956 Melbourne Summer Olympics as a 17-year-old and won three Olympic medals, all gold. Four years later, as a 21-year-old, he won three Olympic medals (one gold, one silver, one bronze) at the 1960 Rome Summer Olympics.

In 1983, Dawn Fraser and Murray Rose were named the greatest Australian Olympians in history. It followed an Australian-wide vote by past and present Olympians.

He was Inducted in The Sport Australia Hall of Fame in 1985 as an Athlete Member for his contribution to the sport of swimming and was Elevated to Legend of Australian Sport” in 1999.

A deeply committed Patron of Rainbow Club Australia, he was passionate about allowing special needs children to explore their abilities through sporting and recreational activities. Upon his death in 2012, Rainbow Club Australia renamed our annual ocean swim, Murray Rose Malabar Magic Ocean Swim, in his honour. His dedication, drive and his ability to be a friend to all, continues today as the Magic goes from strength to strength and is known as the most “inclusive swims on the calendar.”
