Following the success of this years first running of the Bradford on Avon, Open Water Triathlon and as part of DB Max's summer of triathlon, there are several opportunities for local multi-sport athletes and complete novices to experience the thrill of open water swim racing.

On Tuesday 17th and 31st of August DB Max are running an open water river Aquathlon (750m swim / 5km run) and a 5km run event at the stunning Bradford on Avon Canoe and Rowing Club venue. The swim is in the river Avon and the run course follows the picturesque canal toepath down to Avoncliffe. These high quality events offer fast, true racing, over marked courses and with chip timing. After each event there is a social BBQ at the locally renowned Lock Inn and series prizes supported by ZOGGS, SNUGG and Science in Sport.

Vobster Quay

On Saturday 21st August, the open water fun moves to Vobster Quay Diving Centre (approximately 5 miles from Frome and Radstock), which offers some of the best open water swimming in the whole of South West England. In the morning the DB Max swim coaching team, which includes an elite Ironman triathlon champion, will share their knowledge and experience in an open water swimming clinic that covers all aspects of open water swim training and racing. The clinic will cater for all abilities, with plenty of opportunity for one to one feedback. This is followed at 1300hrs with the BIG SWIM and Aquathlon races, with swim distances of 750m, 1.5km and 3.8km. Open water swimming doesn't get better than this. If you would like to enter any of the events or attend the coaching clinic please visit

The events attract a field from triathlon, swimming and running clubs, however they are open to anyone and will very much welcome individuals new to the multi-sport community. If you are not sure about racing, why not come down to the riverside, watch the events and meet the DB Max team.
