We run a summer series of aquathons – we call them a Splash ‘n’ Dash.
Five events at different beach locations around the Island between June and August. The normal format is a sea swim of between 400m and 1000m followed by a run of between 3km and 6km.
The events are nominated time events, meaning you estimate your total time for the race and the nearest to their predicted time wins.
Points are awarded and the member with the best (lowest) score in the their three best races is the series winner, collecting the trophy at the Annual Awards dinner.
As well as being great fun, Splash n Dash events are excellent training sessions, getting competitors used to open water swimming in a race environment and the all important transitions skills of water exit and wetsuit removal!
