Summer Open Water Swim Race Series

U16's Summer Open Water Swim Race Series

OpenWaterSwim.co.uk, an open water swimming venue located at Westhorpe Farm in Little Marlow, is hosting an U16's Summer Swim Race Series consisting of three open water swim races on Thursday 17 July, Thursday 31 July and Thursday 21 August. Juniors have the choice of a 750m or 1500m swim event and can enter races individually or take on the challenge and race all three.

Great prizes to be won! Registration and swim warm up from 5:30pm to 6:30pm, race briefing at 6:30pm and race starts 6:45pm. Entries available online for £12.50 per individual race or £30 for all three.

All juniors competing need to be competent swimmers and capable of completing the full distance under race conditions. This is perfect preparation for the ASA Open Water National Age Group and Youth Championships or a great opportunity for junior club swimmers looking for a challenge during the August swim club holidays.

For those 16 and over, we have our evening swim race series which is held on the same dates - being Thursday 17 July, Thursday 31 July and Thursday 21 August. Competitors taking part in these races have the option of a 750m, a 1500m or a 3.8km event. Further details, including online entries, can be found on our website (OpenWaterSwim.co.uk).
