This is an often asked question. The simple explanation is that it is like a triathlon without the bike bit! You swim (with a choice of distance), and then run 5k. We also offer the opportunity to split it into a team event - so one person can swim, the other can run.
We would recommend investing in some quality swimming gear or a wetsuit. Although the sea temperature should be pretty good in August we are hardly the mediterranean! You will also need a good set of goggles. We provide swim hats which you must wear. For the run, just some good running shoes and comfortable shorts/leggings and a t-shirt or vest.
The swim is in the sea and we are offering 200m, 400m or for the more experienced 750m. In all instances the run is 5k.
Well, it is an Aquathlon, so as an individual yes, but we are offering team entries too. Maybe you are good at running but not good at swimming or the other way around. Find a buddy who is good at what you are not and make a team - one person will swim, the other will run.
