Estimated swim times
When completing the online entry form, you will be asked for an estimated swim time. It's important you are as accurate as possible as we set swimmers off according to their swim times.

For 750m, the fastest swimmers complete the distance in around 10 minutes, the average time is between 17-18 minutes and the slowest about 30 minutes. We don't mind how long you take but the race runs much more smoothly if everyone is swimming with others of a similar ability. You will be given an opportunity to update your estimated time nearer to race day.

Novice training sessions
This year we are offering a choice of two novice training sessions both on Sunday 22 April (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) for those (aged 17+) who are taking part in their first triathlon or just want to learn more. The training session will cost £45 and can be booked separately from your race entry following the link on the race website from 19:00 on 4 February.

We will be unable to respond to emails on 4 February but if you have any queries please email us on and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Good luck with your race entry and hopefully see you on Sunday 13 May.
