An Aquathlon is an endurance race combining a swim followed by a run, they are incredibly popular as starting points for many endurance athletes and are a great training race for those doing triathlons later in the year.

Our TRAINING RACES offer the competitors an opportunity to gauge fitness, practice mass swim starts, swimming with others, practice transitions and to add a element of competition to your training in a relaxed and inexpensive environment.

This will enable you to try new things and make sure that you get a great workout as well as preparing yourself for your major ‘A’ races during the summer.

Race day evening:

The races will start at 7:30am on Saturday morning so we ask that you arrive in plenty of time to change, register, lay out your transition area and warm up prior to the race start. You will need to register your attendance with the coach and you will be given

– A swim cap (if needed)

– On your hand will be written a ‘Number’ or ‘Letter’, this will be how the race marshals are able to record your time at the finish line of the race.

At the registration desk you will also be able to purchase a selection of items including Blueseventy goggles, swim toys as well as sports lubricant, energy products and more.
