What to wear
swimming costume with T shirt to put over it for the run (you do not get changed after the swim - you will dry off on the run!). Trainers for the run.
Where do I get changed?
the swimming pool changing rooms will be available before the swim and after the run and you may leave your belongings in a locker whilst you compete. Do NOT leave your belongings in a cubicle.
How does the swim work?
Swimmers will be set off in batches according to their age and estimated time and will swim in roped lanes. The more accurate you can be about your swim time the more likely you are to be in a lane with swimmers of a similar ability which reduces congestion.
How does the scoring work for the adult/child teams?
The adult and the childs points will be added together to produce a winning team.
There will be small prizes for each age category.
