SWIM & AQUATHLON INFO
Registration opens at 18:00 with the event starting at 19:30. The swim will take place in the safe and crystal clear waters of Vobster Quay and the run will be an out and back run on quiet country lanes. For those in need of sustenance, food and drink will be available before and immediately after you've completed your event discipline. Clubs and teams are very welcome to get involved.
Two event catagories are available, giving you the freedom to select the entry option that best suits you. For those that just want to participate in the timed swim, you can choose between four different distances - 350, 750, 1500 or 3000 metres
Alternatively, you can choose to partipate in the full Aquathlon event with both a timed swim and run. Two distances are available for Aquathlon participants - a 350 metre swim with a 1 kilometre run
or a 750 metre swim with a 5 kilometre run
. Which will you choose?
NEW FOR 2023! - we're ditching our trusty clipboard and switching to a new electronic timing system for all participants. This new system from Split Second Timing offers greater timing precision and - best of all - will allow you to view your performance results online in super quick time!
