New Aquathon Series comes to Lee Valley
Lee Valley Regional Park Authority is pleased to announce a new ‘Aqualthlon’ series which will take place on the second Tuesday of every month from May to October.
The monthly events will take place at the Lee Valley White Water Centre, Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, the Olympic venue from canoe slalom and in the picturesque River Lee Country Park.
Each event will provide the option for two race distances
– 250m swim and 3k run
– 500m swim and 5.5k run
The swim will take place in the lake at the centre in which the water is cleaned and filtered. The run will be a one or two lap course, on a range of surfaces of pathways through the traffic free park. This is a great event for new open water swimmers as the pool is shallow and wetsuits will be available to borrow.
Entries are now open via www.entrycentral.com
