Back To Rumkale

Following the cancellation of the event in 2020, International Rumkale Water Sports Festival resumes on 26 September this year.

Gaziantep Metropolitan Municipality, the organiser of the Festival, had to cancel last year’s event due to the pandemic after the very successful three editions between 2017 and 2019. Water sports enthusiasts will meet again in Rumkale for the dragon boat, water polo and swimming races.

Depar Timing is set to provide the timing services at the Open Water Swimming Races within the 4th International Rumkale Water Sports Festival. The 800m race for the 11-12 year-old swimmers will start at 11:30 and will be followed by the age groups of 13-14, 15-16, 17-18, 19-29 and 30+ over a distance of 2021m on Sunday, 26 September. Around 350 swimmers are expected to participate in the races.

Further information on the Festival is available, the official website of the event.
