Welcome to the 8th running of these fabulous lake swims taking place at the ever popular Tri2O Swim Centre on the outskirts of Reading.

The Big Dog Swim will provide a great test for the more experienced swimmer and a perfect start to the racing season. This 3.8 swim will be an ideal time trial for those looking at Ironman events through the summer and will be brilliant time in the water for those that just love and swim and swim.

The Doggy Paddle swim event offers the perfect opportunity to those looking to conquer the Olympic distance swim portion of a triathlon for the first time, to those wanting to practice that unique feeling of a mass deep water start and perhaps just trying to improve their swim times.
