Absolutely everything you need to know about the Long Course weekend will be in our event pack. You can get yours at the event. This will include event timings.

We recommend using the online Event Pack as a guide, as an email will be sent to the address you registered with notifying you of final details and possible amendments.

These must be collected at the time of registration upon showing photo ID and a signed copy of the disclaimer.
Do I have to participate all three days?
No, you can also enter for just 1 discipline.
How is the swim start organised?
It will be a mass start, therefore you will need to get into position prior to the starting gun. If you think you are in with a chance, get to the front – if not, try and organise yourselves with quicker swimmers nearer the front and slower ones at the back.
Do I have to wear a wetsuit?
Wearing a wetsuit is mandatory.
How do you marshall / ensure safety on a swim?
There will be support boats and kayaks with qualified life-saving personnel on hand. There will be a Race Briefing prior to the race, but if you have any problems, it is standard to lie on your back, raise your hand and you will be picked out the water as soon as possible.

You must wear the Long Course Weekend swim cap provided for the event. This will be in your goodie bag for collection at Registration.
