Event update - 16.01.21


We at Enduro Sports Goa have been closely monitoring the local as well as the global situation during the last two weeks. A worrying trend seems to be setting in with a rising number of COVID-19 cases and deaths. India alone has seen two recent spikes of 35000+ new cases/day.

In view of this rapidly progressing and potentially hazardous situation, we feel it best to defer to the following year (i.e., 2022) an event that would bring together hundreds of people from different parts of our country and the world into close proximity with one another as well as with the Goan public.

Even though we face stormy seas at the moment, we do glimpse calm on the horizon with the beginning of the vaccination drive from today onwards. It brings us hope that one day in the not too distant future, we can meet once again to swim, smile and socialize together at The Goa Swimathon.
