The Aquathon Series is a swim followed by a run event aimed at 8 year olds to adults of all abilities. This is a family friendly event set within local swimming pools or a purpose built swim friendly, safe loch.
You start in the pool or loch within your ages category or swimming abilities, where you go off in heats. You exit the water and enter a transition area were you change in your running gear and complete a run then finish under the finish inflatable. The runs are generally round parks or pavement so they can be of multi terrain. Children’s runs can be watched by parents.
