SWIM SOLSTICE

20th JUNE 2020

THORPE LAKES, THORPE RD, CHERTSEY KT16 8PH

At 7pm swimmers will start in the water and begin their 3 hour swim.

Swimmers will compete either solo, in pairs or teams of 3 to see who can complete the largest number of laps in the time given. The current number of laps will be displayed in the club house so supporters & team mates can see how the scores are progressing.

The swim will begin in daylight and finish by twilight so for the final hour of the swim glow sticks (provided) and tow float (not provided) will be required. Laps will be 1000m long for the first 2 hours and reduce to 500m for the final twilight hour.

This year Swim Solstice has moved up the road to Thorpe Lakes.

This means we get to relaunch Swim Solstice at a new venue all over again but should have the benefit of clean clear water throughout the season.

THE COURSE

Do I need to have done open water swimming before?

You will want to be a confident and relaxed open water swimmer to make the most of this event so training outdoors before the event is highly reccomended. Luckily you can join us for swimming at Papercourt Open Water Swim on Tuesday nights prior to the event or look up your closest local lake online.

TEAM FAQ

Do we swim at the same time?

No teams will function as a relay so just one person will be in the water at one time. You will share a timing chip and will be able to swap over chips on shore between laps.
