OUR EVENTS ARE AIMED AT EVERYBODY. PLEASE DO NOT FEEL THAT YOU NEED TO TAKE PART IN THE MASS START - YOU CAN JUST USE THIS EVENT TO TimeURSwim AND SET OFF BEHIND THE OTHERS.
Please make sure that you fully understand all of our lakes rules and are familiar with the layout of the swim course. Lake rules and information are all available on our website www.sheppertonopenwaterswim.co.uk We would recommend that you come for a swim to familiarise yourself with the course prior to racing and normal swimming is allowed on race evenings so you are able to come early and have a warm up if you wish.
All competitors must arrive at least half an hour before race start to allow for registration. Late arrivals may not be allowed to swim. You will be given a timing chip that must be secured on your ankle and a coloured hat that indicate your race distance. Please ensure that you complete the distance that you entered.. Please make sure you enter and race the race distance that you want to compete in - changing any details on the night may not be possible and all changes will incur a £5 admin fee. If you cannot complete the distance please do not run up the timing mat as you exit the water. Any lost chips will be charged at £10 each.
If you have not swum at our lake before then you must allow extra time to complete a health questionnaire and complete a swim test before you can take part. You can download the health questionnaire here and bring it with you already completed.
Race Cost: £20 for each distance (must be pre booked) RACERS please note that registration closes half an hour before race start. If you would like your start time sent by SMS to your phone, please make sure you tick the box when you are registering and please remember to put all of your social networking details in so that we can tell people how you are doing. There will be no guaranteed late entries on the day so please enter on line. In the event that we allow late entries they will be charged at £25 paid cash on a first come first served basis. Late entries must also arrive a minimum of 1hr before race start.
Minimum age for swimmers is 16 years of age.
Please support our BBQ which is available during and after the race for you and your guests. We need you to let us know you wish to attend so that we can cater for you. Maisie now organises the BBQ with her crew so you expect great quality food :-) at a fair price.
