Do you fancy a new challenge? Do you want to push yourself to your limits? Then take on the new Sandford Swim Challenge! With a 5K and a 1K option, this event is perfect for anybody wanting to test themselves. Please be aware that this event will take place during our reduced temperature fortnight, so the pool will be approximately 23°C.
You will be able to choose between a 5k or 1k distance and start times will be determined based on your estimated finish times. Entry to the 5k challenge costs £32 and the 1k costs £22. We are delighted to partner with Severn Point Automotive and GE Aviation for this event and we would like to thank Weird Fish and Swim Secure for providing us with prizes for each category winner.
Participants will be set off at intervals throughout the morning. All swimmers will begin in Lane 1 and swim two lengths before moving into Lane 2 for two lengths and so on. After two lengths in Lane 10, swimmers will get out of the pool and pass through the transition area on poolside before getting back in at Lane 1. Breaks may be taken in the transition area, but this time will be included in the overall swim time. Each full lap of the pool is 1km, so participants completing the 5K challenge will do five laps.
