The 400m swim is 16 lengths of the leisure centre's 25-metre pool.
We will do our best to try and ensure you are swimming in a lane with others of a similar speed, so please be realistic with your your anticipated swim time when entering to help us.
The Marshalls are there to start you off & assist but it is your responsibility count your own lengths.
Each lane will have upto 4 swimmers, if you are tapped on the feet or are signalled by the Marshalls please give way to faster swimmers at the end of the length.
Key things to remember:
No Tumble Turns.
Give way to faster swimmers at each end.
No dangerous overtaking.
No running poolside.
On leaving the pool building you will run barefoot to the transition area. Please be aware that public nudity is not allowed and will result in a penalty or disqualification so you will need to wear the garments you swam in for the duration of the event.
Don't forget: Swim suit or Tri suit & Goggles (we will provide swim hats)
