SATURDAY 11 JUNE SWIM INFORMATION

Unfortunately, the swim events scheduled for Saturday 11 June, were cancelled due to very strong gusting winds which are unsuitable for open water swimming. We will offer all participants affected by the Saturday cancellation the option to roll their entry over to the next staging of the event (9 – 11 June 2023), or to receive a refund – all participants have been sent an email with further details. The deadline for refund requests is 10am on Friday 1 July.

This year's event was affected by strong winds, course modifications and sadly cancellations, but we hope that those who were able to get in the water still had an amazing time and enjoyed soaking up the event atmosphere. Well done to those who had to deal with challenging conditions in the water, you did a brilliant job.
