Organisers of the Guildford Aquathlon Series have cancelled some events.
Organisers of the Guildford Aquathlon Series have announced that due to unprecedented rainfall over the spring, the River Wey is no longer suitable for swimming. As a result of this, the aquathlons scheduled to take place from Shalford Park, Guildford on the 16th June and 28th July have been cancelled. Sincere apologies to all athletes affected by the cancellations.
A substitute aquathlon will take place at the Surrey Sports Park on 28th July. This event will consist of an 800m swim and a 5km cross country run. For more details, and to enter, go to www.guildfordaquathlonseries.co.uk.
Free open water swim training sessions are still available thanks to Triathlon England. These sessions offer swimmers the opportunity to get used to the water and pick up some hints and tips!
Novice training days – 4th June 7:30-9pm; 21st July 8:30-10am.
Rob Mitchell, Events Manager at the Surrey Sports Park said: We are excited to be part of this aquathlon series, which works towards a shared ambition to encourage local residents to become more active. I hope people will enjoy swimming in our state-of-the- art pool, and running through the University grounds.”
