Summer of Open Water Swimming continues with DB Max
Created On: 12 August 2010
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.
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 www.dbmax.co.uk.
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.
