Swimmers can transfer to a shorter distance (subject to there being capacity). 

  • Pre wave allocation – up until the point whereby entrants are allocated their start time/wave time and race packs start to be produced (approx. 6 weeks prior to the event weekend)

Please contact us here with your full name and details of the distance you have entered together with the distance you would prefer. 

We can then withdraw your entry from the original distance and send you an online entry form to complete for the shorter distance. No admin fee is charged, and no entry fee is refunded.

  • Post wave allocation – Once start time/wave times have been allocated and swim packs have been sent out, distance transfer requests can be sorted on the event weekend at the information point on the event site. 

Swimmers wishing to change distance must present their race pack to be replaced for the shorter distance equivalent (subject to there being capacity within the event). Swimmers must do this at least 1 hour prior to desired swim wave start. No admin fee is charged, and no entry fee is refunded.

(Entrants in the Great SwimRun can also transfer to the shorter distance SwimRun)
