The race limit is 80 due to water safety.
Registration will open at 8.00am and the swim will now start at 9.00am. This is because we can only have the water safety team till 12pm
There are toilets on site and they are about 200m away next to the security office.
Parking will still be in the Crosswaters car park. Lake View House, Rennie Dr, Dartford DA1 5FU.
Please don’t leave any rubbish in the car park. We are very lucky to have the use of their car park.
This is about 300m from the race start.
Registration will be by the lake in front of the Van.
There will be a short race brief before you enter the water to go over water safety.
There will be 3 kit lines be laid out in rows No 1 to 80.
Each number will be 2 meters apart. Go to your number to set up.
Due to covid19 there will not be a changing tent.
As it stands the race will now be run a time trial one swimmer starting every 10 seconds. This could all change over the next 2 weeks
To take part in this event you must have swam open water before. You will be asked to sign a race waver form before the race to confirm this.
We have a new timing system so we will be able to give out the results on the day.
