The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic is likely to result in the cancellation of some or all the Summer Aquathlon races. The lido is currently closed and we do not know when it will re-open. If you have already registered we can either refund you or move you to one of the later races in the hope that we will be open again. Apologies for the uncertainty.

A few details about the event.

• The race is a 1km swim (11 lengths of the pool) followed by a ~7.5km run around Tooting Bec Common (3 laps of a sign-posted circuit). A maximum of 100 people can take part – we typically have 2 waves. A map of the run route can be seen on the here. Registration will open at 7.15pm and close promptly at 7.50pm.
The first wave will start at 8.00pm.

• Series Winner(s) The Race Directors will decide overall series winners at the end of the 4th race. To be considered you must have participated in at least 3 out of the 4 events in your age category. The best part is the winner will get a mug!!!!!

• Certificates and medals are awarded to male and female first, second and third place in each age category for each race. If you would like a personal certificate with your time on we will be happy to make electronic copies for you to print off at your convenience.

• Age ranges are:
40-49 (veteran)
50+ (super-veteran)

As with all SLSC events we are always in need of volunteers to help us make our events safe and fun. Being an SLSC volunteer is a great way to meet new people, put names to faces at the Lido and generally have a good time. If you can spare an hour or two on race days please do come and help our Aquathlon Team with time-keeping and marshalling the run route.
