In our bid to leave a lighter footprint on our environment, we will no longer be sending out swimmers’ packs through the post. Not only will this mean that we are reducing our emissions from not transporting thousands of swim packs around the country, but it will also mean that no swim packs go missing, which leads to less printing of spare items.  

You will follow the following process: 

  1. Arrive at the event 2 hours before your start time and head to the pack pick-up point next to the information point 

  1. You'll collect your pack and then go through to the 'swimmer-only zone' approx. an hour before your start time (this area is located beyond the information point, towards the water - look out for signage) 

You'll get changed, use the toilet facilities and then go to check in to your swim 30 minutes before your start. You'll then get warmed up and have the chance to acclimatise to the water before you head off on your swim. 

Our full event day guide can be located at  We will be sending emails this week and the lead-up to the event which will list your swim time.
