These events are swim / run races. They are all in unheated water so wetsuits are recommended.
Currently Races 1 & 2 are at Hillingdon Sports & Leisure Complex and are 750m swim in the outdoor pool followed by a 5k run on grass.
At Hillingdon Sports & Leisure complex, the swim is a TT start, 8 lanes going off at every 10 seconds per lane in the outdoor pool, making it an ideal preparation for open water races, including having to remove your wetsuit.
The run is a 3 lap out and back course, giving competitors plenty of opportunity to see the position of their opponents. This also gives your families plenty of opportunities to cheer you on!
Races 3 & 4 are at Merchant Taylors & the swim is 750m Open Water, following their established course & the run is a 5k run, approximately twice around the lake, with plenty of opportunities for supporters to cheer you on!.
