Do you fancy a new challenge? Do you want to push yourself to your limits? Then take on the new Sandford Swim Challenge! With 10K and 5K options, as well as a team category, this event is perfect for anybody wanting to test themselves.

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 10K challenge will do 10 laps and the 5K, 5 laps.

Please note: The deadline for entries and alterations for this event is 11:59pm on Friday 10th July. No refunds, transfers or cancellations after Friday 12th June.
