Please be honest when you tell us your expected swim time; use your last 400m time, or your average 100m time as a guide. 

 

The swim is 400 metres in a newly opened 25-metre pool. You will have one of our team to count your lengths and they'll give you a clear signal when you're done. 

Run

When you've finished your swim you'll be guided by our team of marshalls to transition and the start of the run.

 

The run is 1 lap. Its out and back across multi terrain including trails so remember to bring trail shoes if its wet.

Prize giving will take place as soon as possible after the race, there's coffee and cake to keep you going too.
