What are the distances?

1. 500m - great for first timers or those people finding their feet. This distance is also great for youngsters who wish to sample open water and gain experience.
2. 1600m - 'The Classic Mile' is our most popular event, it's a great challenge for swimmers of all ability levels and always proves to be a closely contested event!
3. 3.8K - This event exists as it's the official distance for 'Ironman' triathlon events and provides triathlon competitors with an opportunity to cover the distance in a realistic race setting. Aside from Ironman triathlon competitors it's also a great challenge for long distance swimmers.
