Bali Hope

The 2019 Bali Hope Swimrun


“The Bali Hope Swimrun is so much more than a race. It’s a 5-day event to bring together a group of strangers and bond over a single mission: to help a community save their island from plastic pollution. Each of us was moved and forever changed in our own way, and connected thanks to the amazing experience we shared”

Lezlea Talbot, 2018 Bali Hope Swimrun Team


Protecting one small island from plastic pollution

Our 2019 Swimrun will be the second year we have supported the small community on the beautiful islands of Lembongan and Ceningan to defend their homeland from plastic pollution. Our fundraising campaign will help finance both a recycling infrastructure and an education campaign to support and educate young people in sustainability. Amid the growing ecological challenges we face it’s great to be able to make a stand and create an example of what’s possible for the rest of the Bali and beyond.


Elite athletes

The inspiration provided by the Otillo Swimrun world champion Annika Ericsson and elite triathletes Andy Wibowo and Inge Prasetyo, amongst others, brings a new level of energy to this unique and intimate endurance event. The access and time all teams have with each other creates an exceptionally supportive family atmosphere and a brilliant 5 days.


Stunning location

The small tropical islands of Lembongan and Ceningan provide a stunning backdrop to this unique swimrun event. The fact that we are fundraising to help protect the local environment from plastic pollution ensures the entire local community is behind us all the way and this adds a magical element to the event.


all inclusive luxury

We take pride in making sure our participants have the best available accommodation and hospitality and in Lembongan that means high-end villas with private pools, all inclusive access to the best beach club on the island, including all meals and drinks. As we strive through the challenge of the race and our fundraising campaign together delivering an unforgettable experience for you and our team is our primary objective.
