What do I need to bring?
Bathers, wetsuit is optional but recommended for those who feel the cold. Goggles, brightly coloured Swim Cap (two swim caps if your head feels the cold). Towel to stand on. Running Shoes. Change of clothes. A smile. A willing attitude and spirit of support for other entrants.

How do I do an Aquathlon?
Entrants begin at the waters edge. You enter the water when the siren sounds and swim to your buoy and back to shore. Once on the shore, you walk or run to the transition area. You may feel a bit dizzy so take your time, remove your wetsuit, cap and goggles, stand on your towel and put your shoes on. Then you run (or walk!)to your turn point and finish at the finishing chute, and get those awesome finish line feels. Congratulate yourself on a job well done.
Get changed, get warm and dry and we'll announce the place getters when everyone has finished. We will have a few random draw prizes at the end.

Don't forget to be Covid Safe! Keep your distance. No hugging at the end but elbow or feet bumps are ok!
