SwimRun

This race is only open to Seniors aged 16 and above. The concept of a SwimRun event is that participants work in pairs and must stay as a pair throughout the race. The participants complete a number of swims and runs to make their way to the finish line. Starts 14.00.

At this stage the approximate distances for the race are as follows:

Run1 = 1.3km

Swim1 = 1.5km

Run2 = 3km

Swim2 = 1km

Run3 = 4km

Swim3 = 1.5km

Run4 = 50m

Swim4 = 300m

Distances are approximate and measured using a GPS tracking device. The race organisers reserve the right to alter the course if necessary.
