Did the race in 2022
My 8th time swimming this 10k and I love it.
Did the race in 2022
Lovely event. Well organised & friendly. Great kayak and feed station support.
Did the race in 2022
I enjoy the swim very much, maybe more assistance getting in and out of the river would be helpful.
Did the race in 2022
The second time I've done this event and I love it. The organisation is superb, everyone's friendly and chilled and the course is just beautiful. The event was postponed (very appropriately) due to storm forecasts, and the communication and approach to participants were absolutely spot-on. Highly recommended.
Did the race in 2022
Thoroughly enjoyed last year, so came back this year! Everyone is so supportive even though I’m not particularly quick! More low key than some other events, letting me swim at my pace to get to the end!
Did the race in 2022
Appreciated the support from the marshalls and organisers. Big thanks to Lyn, one of the kayakers who gave me her food and water.
Did the race in 2022
Really friendly supportive atmosphere. As a new year to this felt very non threatening. Would highly recommend. Nice quiet wide river so no swimming over the top of me
Did the race in 2022
Really good event, will definately consider doing it next year, once I recover. Really well organisased and you could tell how much effort had gone into ensuring it happered after the initial date was cancelled due to weather
Did the race in 2022
Great event, well organised and def do it again
Did the race in 2022
Very relaxed vibe which helped with the nerves. Good organization and communication was excellent in the lead up. A couple of times I felt nervous as couldn’t see other swimmers or kyackers but I expect they were behind me. Overall a really enjoyable experience and one I would do again and recommend to others. Well done 👍

Hello I am very much looking forward to doing this swim. Can anyone tell me how much time you are allowed to spend in each transition? How are the times worked out do they include the transition times? Thanks in advance

Hey there, just to let you know you can spend as long as you need at the feed stations, however, the timer does not stop, so if you're looking for a quick time I would recommend spending as little time at the each station. All the best!
