About the event

Dusk to Dawn is back with the second edition. Seeing the inspired performance from the athletes in the first edition of Dusk to Dawn, beyond our imagination, we are refining the second edition to help people aim for bigger goals and better experiences

What is the event?

Dusk To Dawn is a 12-hr swimming challenge where individuals / groups will get a chance to swim for 12 hrs. The event starts in the evening and ends early morning, so it is a night swim. Although it is a challenge, you don’t need to be a competitive swimmer to participate – people of all abilities can join in and take part.


D2D is held in the Olympic Size Swimming Pool at Palava City Phase 2. This venue offers facilities that are unmatched in this city and thus an experience that truly delights the swimmers.

Stay left – try to swim as close to the lane rope as possible to allow for anyone faster to overtake you.

Overtaking – Overtaking to be done from right of the swimmer in front. When overtaking ensure you continue to swim within the left side of the lane (never swim so wide that you swim into a swimmer from the oncoming lane!). Once you are well in front of the slower swimmer move back to the left side of the lane in front of them. If you are the swimmer being overtaken remain to the left of the lane as much as possible. Hold your line (and speed!)
